Shading Tutorial by sbneko Shading Tutorial by sbneko
So, I decided to make this for you guys, though I'm not a very good teacher. I in no way think I'm all that good at shading, but maybe you can use it to help ya out to get better then move on.

I used my character Echo for this. I was going to use a baby picture I was going to work on, but I decided to keep this neutral.

This tutorial works for Paint tool sai. It's possible it might work on others, but I haven't tried.

Hi there, I had a little question, you wouldn't happen to be making any other tutorials would you? For example on how you do your lineart/sketches etc.. Just wondering because I'm always looking to improve and your art looks like you might have some neat techniques for me to try out :)

Sorry if the question bothers you!

No, sorry I most likely wouldn't. I don't feel comfortable with tutorials. Even if people like my art, I make a lot of mistakes and have a long way to go, I don't want to just teach mistakes. 

I also don't really have any techniques for inking, it's just practice really.

Alright then, thank you for taking the time to reply to me. I can get that, just know that if you ever change your mind or get to the point where you believe you're good enough to make tutorials for others, I'll be one of the first to use them :)
I think your art is wonderful, but everyone has to be comfortable with their own creations. Good luck and I'll be happy to follow your progress!

And in that case, I'll just keep practicing :)
