Here's a page from 2008, when I started playing around with shading and stuff, inspired by the illustrations in some books I read. Below is the original photo I took, but I wasn't sure if you could see it well enough, so I lightened up another version of it and added it as well...
The lightened version:

Um...this was breakfasts at different angles... Doodles from 2012.

Pen and ink fairy. I know, I know, her legs are different lengths. Haha. I guess my foreshortening didn't work very well. This was from 2013.
