    How do you do your shading?
    It looks like it's mainly hatching, but do you also use a smudge stick or something?
    I'm a beginner, and experimenting with shading techniques without much satisfaction so far. My best to date is probably the charcoal sketch I posted a little earlier.
    Hey Pete,

    I used 2B/3B pencil on cheap sketching paper. Using better paper might give me cleaner results, but I haven't expermented with it much. I used to smudge and crosshatch on the same drawing, but I'm trying to stop because it breaks the "atmosphere" for me (plus this recently discovered website advises against it). Now I use contoured hatching and a little "colouring in" (with some prestik for making revisions). But I found that a good medium for practising shading is pen. It keeps me from relying on the eraser too much, and forces me to use hard lines with more care. I love coloured soft pastels and charcoal for the freedom and satisfaction they provide, but I haven't used them much.

    The filesize might be too big. You can post the version on that website by typing the following without spaces:

    I like it, by the way, it's nice - especially that demonic prisoner. Very good.

    So, what exactly were you trying to express in these facial disturbed expressions?

    God I hate hapsburg's stupid fat soulless characters.
    They oddly confirm beyond a shadow of doubt that hapsburg is a dumb arse and a fuckhead.

    The old saying "a picture says a thousand words" is particularly accurate if you add "about the person who created it".
