Sephiroth - FF VII by Eternal-Axis Sephiroth - FF VII by Eternal-Axis
A rush drawing of Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII of Square Enix. Sorry if you think the shading is bad, but I hope you like it guys. Can anyone tell me how to blend properly? :)

Tools I used:
-HB, 4B, 6B, and 8B pencils
-Tissues for blending
-Ordinary eraser

Please leave at least a short comment. Thanks in advance :).

if you have good vision and a lot of light you could draw the principle linework in an h lead almost invisble to the naked eye, the idea is that there will be fewer solid lines visible to tthe naked eye hopefully when you shade this will give the work more depth. you should use more variety in the leads that you use it will give you a wider spectrum of light and dark you will notice the difference when trying to emulate metal and leather grinding the graphite with sandpaper and then applyiing it with a q tip can create very delicate tones.Q tips are good a set of blending tools would be better. Look at different kinds of paper, a slight roughness to the sheet will pick up the graphite better than a smoother material. Your work is excellent by the way, I don't have a problem with the hands or lips but I think that the hair and metal were an opportunity to add greater contrast to work.

Thanks for the tips, it might help me in my future works. Sorry if I'm bad at shading, no one ever thought me about portraiture, when I saw one I just thought if I can do it to LOL. I really don't have much idea about good shading and the principle of light and dark. Hopefully through self study I can improve myself. Anyway thanks a lot :)

you are welcome, I don't think that you are bad a shading there is always room for improvement, I am good at some things anmd not so great at others. you do seem to have a good priciiple of light and dart I think if you use a broader spectrum of shade you will see a more dramatic result it may be your tools that need expanding and not so much your skill. It is still an impressive work.
