The best way to shade is to start out with small little circles the overlap them if looks more smooth than Lines. ALso you should practice by drawing a apple -if u can- then shade it with little circles it would look VERY smooth!

Also you can also make a few boxes and practice darker and lighter shading, Remember dont press to hard! Also use circles for drawings you want really smooth the more time u take on shading the better and more real the picture will turn out.

I also Suggest you dont use a normal pencil when using this technique i normally use a... HB2 TICONDEROGA Noix pencil it is very shiny :D

to shade you just need to know the principale of shading its easy where the side theres light the other side will make a shadow

for shading you can also get the rolled up paper thingi. I have it but after a few uses you have to ba careful when you're shading light or dark.

cool ill try it.
