And if you have colored pencils which are idling somewhere in your home, here are some downloadable pages for you to color.  These are more sophisticated than your typical coloring books.  Definitely fun fun fun.

Last but certainly not least, I recently read a review of a new comic in which the artist's use of shading was praised.  The graphic novel itself was all done in black and white and shades of grey.  I only saw the one panel in the review but I wasn't especially impressed because I follow the work of another artist whose work I feel had superior talent when it comes to shading.  By way of example I offer you this image and link so you can see for yourself:

And a bit ol' happy birthday to the artist.  I know you don't like having your birthday highlighted and celebrated and .  . . still . . . let the villagers rejoice.

  1. The first pencil sculpture things are amazing! I've truly never seen anything like it. I'm not not saying happy birthday to the artist who's birthday it is to be rude, I'm not not saying it so I don't upset her. I text her already though.

  2. I wouldn't worry too much about it. I don't think the artist reads this page so it's all good.
