This is one I have just finished, quite happy with it, but can anyone advise best way to shade the cloud effect around the picture. I used a diluted talens black with a 9 mag for this, but can't get a very good finish. The girl and dragon were done with 9rl and 9rs. I seem to get on ok with mags for colouring but struggle when shading. :confused:

The best way to shade the clouds is to soft shade them....with a mag,just work over a small area at a time, you should work in large circles fairly quickly,make the circles about the size of a 1p,because you are working quick,it won't put in lots of colour in one pass,so you can build it up,also,because you are working quick,it should not over work the skin......hope this helps.
