but then again..i'm not too big on drawing real ppl [img]tongue.gif[/img]

overall it's pretty good
shading is hard with a mechanical pencil. hard to find a real one that isn't color around here. i do much better with art pencils, but i don't have the moneyf or them. of course i did do the whole thing in less than an hour. i'm gonna play with it a bit, but for the most part i am pleased. altho lyn's face isn't as chubby as irl in the drawing. [/QUOTE]For lead shading, you can buy one of those thick 'all lead' pencils. Its as thick as a normal pencil, but with no wood. and coated with a plastic coating.

For shading also, draw some lines where you want shading, then use your finger to shade, or roll up some paper and make a tight tip, and rub it over the lead.

Loads of tricks to this. [img]smile.gif[/img]
