I began being interested in art by painting acrylic paintings, but have begun trying my hand at drawing (mostly pen and ink because I'm a lefty and pencils can get messy). I've been working on trees for quite a while now. It's hard to get them looking natural and unique, but your lesson has helped quite a bit! I'd love some pen and ink aid in terms of shading techniques in general. I'm so happy I found this video! Thank you so much!
