To Shade a Dragon

 So I've been working on this
steampunk dragon
for quite some time.
A little here, a little there.
As the ideas hit me.
This is what he looked like this morning.
I realized I had never shaded him.
Shading is not my favorite.
I really dislike shading,
but it makes such a difference.
As you have heard me say time and again.
Because this is what happens when you shade.
So much depth and dimension.

I tried out a steampunk name generator
on google.
It came up with the name Bramhall.
Sounds like a good dragon name to me.

To shade or not to shade?

    1. Thank you! It is so much fun trying something new.

  2. He certainly gets some oomph shaded doesn't he? Oh the dreaded shading - not my favourite part either but yes........ the difference!

    1. Shading. I usually forget to do it. But it is so much better when I remember.


I've been waiting to hear from you :).
