About This Class

In this Class I will show you how I shade these eyes with graphite pencils to create a realistic look.

This Class is part 2 so make sure you watch Part 1 here first: 

So after you watched part 1 and you are happy with your sketch it’s time to start shading. For me this is the fun part because this will bring your drawing to life. I will show you step by step how I do this and which materials I use.

Material list:
Bristol smooth paper: https://goo.gl/RIQmQS
Caran d’ache graphite pencils: https://goo.gl/4uy7hu
CretaColor black pencil: https://goo.gl/2T4x97
Eraser Pencil perfection 7056: https://goo.gl/VUxGfU
Kneaded eraser: https://goo.gl/iKwQnF

For this drawing I’m using the caran d’ache grafwood pencils. and I will only use the 3b.5b and 9b.
Of course you could also use other graphite pencils. 

So let’s get started! Oh and don't forget to share your work in progress and final drawings in the project gallery for feedback :)
