How to Shade a Doodle Heart Ebook

How to Shade a Doodle Heart Ebook

This Doodle Heart was created in inked line art and shaded using pencil+blending techniques. I liked the results so much I made a tutorial on how to shade the various elements, one step at a time.

Videos are great, but they don't show the exact placement of the shading. This ebook shows step by step EXACTLY where to shade so that your design looks incredibly three-dimensional.

The tutorial has 19 pages and 41 Illustrations, showing step by step how to shade a doodle heart drawing. Includes the line art for you to try it yourself!
