Need work on my highlight edge.

Not sure if the marker was a poor choice again.

snakes are just tubes! Why can't I shade tubes?

Working on that highlight edge.

Angry snake!

What's a highlight edge?

When an edge is brighter than the background usually because it is being hit by the light source, so you have to shade in the background and then erase or keep white the foreground object.

For instance, here's the original photo of the dog:

See how the edge of his back is white because the light is reflecting off his fur?

For the record, this is not an "official art term."

I've always liked your art. I wish I could draw anything!

It's a practiced skill, just like anything else. You'd be amazed just how much a book can teach you, too.

And thank you about liking my art. I appreciate that.

I like the circuit-board eye; the edge between the pencil and the marker may be what's looking not quite right? A fine black marker line at the edge of the eyelid (maybe not even all of it) might help with the boundary issue?

The gull also caught my eye, and the shading there is nifty.
