Hey I looked in your FAQ and couldn't find anything so sorry if you get asked this a lot but, do you have any advice for how to pencil shade POC characters? I sketch and don't know how to make them dark enough so they honestly just end up looking white or slightly tan. :/
SoLDN: ummm…press the pencil on the page harder or use pencil designed to shade deeper so 3B and darker
If you can shade other things darker, then you can shade the skin darker. I don’t understand what’s so hard? :/
