shows changes from light to
dark or dark to light in a picture
by darkening areas that would be shadowed and leaving other areas light. Blending of one value into another is sometimes called feathering. Shading is often used to produce illusions of dimension and depth.
# 1 The darkest tone is as near to BLACK as you
can get, this is your darkest shade. Don't try to
achieve this tone in one application, build it
up in layers.
#2DARK GRAY, this represents the shadowed
side of an object as it recedes
from the light. On the ball, the
light is coming from the upper
front. The shadow is seen
around the lower side.
# 3MEDIUM GRAY, This is called a halftone, because it is seen halfway between the light area and the dark area. The mid gray, the tone that represents the actual color of the object without the effects of either direct light or shadow.
#4LIGHT GRAY, This is the hardest element to see, but it is probably the most important one to have in your art work. This is reflected light. It is light that bounces up onto the ball from the table. It separates shadow from cast shadows.
#5WHITE, This is the lightest part of an object where the
full light falls directly on to it. It is where the light is the strongest and is called the highlight.

Pressure and layering is what determines what shade your pencil will draw.That slow change in shade is what you need to create our shape.
Your pencil is extremely sensitive to your touch.
When you learn to control that pressure and layering, Your shading quality will do new and interesting things.
