In this video, I will show a step-by-step process of how to shade your portrait drawings by understanding the basic principles of light, understanding the form of the face and learning how to shade using a pencil.

This video features how to shade the face in different angles and with different demonstrations. I also touch on how to shade with soft lighting and harsh lighting.
