Before I decided to learn to draw, my 2D art consisted of zentangles. I love zentangles, they’re theraputic and pretty.
But something I never did was shade them. I couldn’t get to grips with the shading, so I just avoided it. The stark look is fine for zentangle pieces, though. I love the way my zentangle pieces look.
When I was just doing colouring, I rarely did any shading there either.
And I’m really happy with those pieces.
But since I started the sketching, and the inking, and the colouring, I’ve learned a thing or two.
Flat images are great. They look good.
But when you some shading, you get a whole different effect.
Shading is awesome. I shall do more.
