Here is my attempt at explaining how to shade things
Again inspired by lots of art I see where the same mistakes are being made a lot by many many artists. Most tutorials I see are about how to shade in a certain "style" or how things look like if they are shaded like. Like, here's a cube, shaded! UNDERSTAND?
Of course not @_@, it takes lots of practice to understand things like that, not a simple tutorial. So my goal with this was to equip beginners with the concepts needed to examine how things are shaded and WHY things are shaded. With this, i hope people can begin to practice on their own and work their brains on shading and 3D forms, and apply it to their own art
