This is the eighth day of the drawing sessions to learn the shade brush of the Paintology drawing app (available from Google play store)

The shade brush is a versatile brush that makes great pencil drawings, just like pencil and paper.

With practice, you will be able to make drawings right on your phone.

Here is the actual drawing made using the shade brush. I put together the nose, lips and eyes and created a template to do the actual drawing. You can see the steps taken to do this drawing.
