Shading With   Texture

Shading is the process of adding value to create the illusion of form, space, and most importantly - light in a drawing. When executed correctly, shading can make a drawing appear three dimensional and create a convincing image.

Adding Texture to

an object

When adding texture to a 3D shape think about the curves of the object and how that will influence its final appearance. 

Techniques used for applying shading to an object are quite varied. Each technique produces a different texture and "feel" to the drawing. 

Adding Colour to your image

Colour is often one of the most exciting components of a design. In both figurative and abstract designs, colour can be used to create a mood and bring out an emotion from its viewer.
