Re: Test figure

I like pre shading but tend to forget to do it myself & work up from white with thick washes of the mid tone which tends to give similar results. I agree about overdoing black lining I prefer to pick out edges of straps in very dark brown ink using a nylon brush as they are stiffer & not to do all o...

Re: Test figure
