Ok so alot of people use pencils wrong! I’m not judging but hear is how the pros threw out history use a pencil i’ve seen alot of people use a whole side for shading but note the angle of my pencil i’m riding the razores edge of it to create thousands of small lines to create the illusion of a fine weave red rug! It’s how its renderd in real life so i draw it fiber by fiber and now for the other half of coloring they have to flow with the perspective! Color with direction and knowledge of the perspective you hope to achieve! Where are you the artist in the scene? where do you view it from? In this case i’m right behind the subject matter also allegory! I just do art well i am a master!
