It’s been a while since I’ve shared any shading maps! These are quick step-by-step sketches to map out the shading…dark, mid tone, light.

The little scripty background in this one was fun – to fade out the “you you you” in the background, I just lightly erased after getting all the pencil in place!

Since we’re experimenting with Wednesdays I thought it could be a good time to try them out again and see what feedback is. Remember, I’m watching comments/shares/pins on Wednesday posts this year, so as you see helpful things, you’ll be helping me decide what to do more of by sharing it!
