All Skill Levels
Secrets of Shading gives you the foundational knowledge you will need to render organic forms from imagination and better understand your references.
We begin with diagrams and exercises to help you understand shading and rendering as "drawing on the inside" of dimensionally conceived forms, and move on to several practical demonstrations.
The demonstrations are done with pencil and provide insight into working with graphite, but the concepts are applicable to all media. The videos total five hours of content and all chapters are fully narrated. All videos are 1080p full HD.
Step by Step Process
Watch step by step video demos from start to finish with educational commentary from the instructor. Most of us are visual learners (we’re artists!), so reading about it or hearing it explained is not enough. We have to see it!
Includes content that the student can download to any personal device for offline viewing.

What others are saying
The Secrets of Shading course delivers on what it promises by providing the secrets you need to know. Your favorite artists all do what Steve will teach you: from the basics, to the advanced knowledge and practice. The difference Steve makes, the secret I've only ever seen him tell, is what matters. I made a huge leap forward in a single day after watching these videos and you can too.
The Secrets of Shading course opened my mind up to the flexible nature of the seemingly concrete, objective nature of light and shadow. In the past I have had great difficulty in understanding how to transition between geoforms like boxes and cylinders to more organic forms such as the human figure, so I nearly cried after Steven taught me how to render arms without building them one geoform at a time.
