Artist: L'Atelier de Suzanne Schubert

Susan's tip:

"Use a light center line like a spinal column to position whatever you're drawing. After LIGHTLY drawing the "outline" of your figure, make the lines disappear by shading the object and contrasting background. Heavy lines around an object make it look flat. When shading or cross hatching, let your pencil follow the contours of the object."
