^Good piece of advice. I also had to do the upside down thing and it worked great.

If you really want to improve and become a skilled artist, listen exactly to what Solace said.

It's just for fun, but I'd like to become better.

i know it might sound stupid, but it works..
when i took art, my teacher had me draw a picture. the picture that i was copying was upside down, so i was able to focus more on drawing exactly what i see, rather than what i thought would look good.

it might sound stupid, but try it.

Actually, that sounds brilliant. I'll try it for my next drawing.

As for shading, there's several techniques. It's my favourite thing to do. Actually, nearly everything you draw will look bad until you shade it. When I drew Eminem it looked pretty weird and then I shading it and it turned out pretty decent. :y:

You can hatch, cross-hatch, use your hands, paint brushes, kleenex, blending stumps, etc. Google it and then experiment and use what's most comfortable and effective for you.

What's wrong with my shading?
