I have put a lot of this on the image, so you have to full view it to see.

Although this is just one tiny aspect of the portrait - I have just went through the sort of process for shading I do so you can see how the shading would go throughout. Dark shading, highlighting and a darker shading.

Also, I am very stuck in my ways with stuff like this and may kinda have a OCD with opacities (yeah all layers/paths that aren't base layers are reduced opacity). I have talked about this with ~Ilaria84 - the opacities always have to be a multiple of 5 :| it's rather sad really... I can't bring myself to use any other numbers.

So not so much of a hint or tip there... but now you know Shaz has a vectoring OCD LOL - anyone else like this?

Any questions or anything so far?

How do you decide where to put the shades? When do you know if it should be darker or lighter or are you just really good at it? I do my shading by posterizing the whole picture and tracing the shades by adding layers.

Basically I scan around the image for common colours. I think when you get into the swing of things, you get used to doing that ^^
