Hey, could we get some lessons on Shading, Perspective and Scale? I'm reeeeeeeaaaaaally bad at all three. I don't think I even understand them fully. Just a quick, separate lesson rather than attached to an assignment?
NOTE TO ALL THOSE I AM GAMING WITH: Currently gaming with others in the Sacred Statue Garden.

Those are three things I have very little understanding of either, so if anyone else feels up to producing a lesson on it that would be awesome! In the meantime, I found a few online resources which might help:

Perspective & Scale
Simple shading
More shading

THIS VIDEO doesn't seem to explain the theory of shading, but does show how to do it in Gimp.

Hope this helps a little bit!
