Ah yes, I forgot about that. I basically grabbed an image of google xD, put it in the area that it needed to go in and then turned down the opacity so it wouldn't be overly noticeable or completely erase the colour underneath

To be honest, I don't see any shading on that.

Mine is fairly simple.
1. Open SAI, create canvas (usually 1500x2000 or vice versa for horizontal pieces, number is flexible depending on subject)
2. Skeleton sketch for anatomy and pose, usually in blue or red hard brush
3. Final sketch with all details, usually in lower opacity hard brush or my pencil brush

From here, the process differs depending on what type of artwork I'm making.

For lineart+cel shade:
4. Inking with precise hard brush
5. Magic wand > select areas to fill colour
6. Cleaning up empty white spots with hard brush
7. Duplicate lineart layer > set to Multiply > begin blocking out shadows
8. If needed, add in highlights
9. If needed, save as PSD to add text and/or other effects

For painted:
4. Fill in base background colour
5. Fill in basic base colours with oil brush and water brush
6. Shadows, depth and highlights using black/eyedropper colours and oil brush
7. Further tweaking of depth with a sponge brush
8. If needed, save as PSD to add text and/or other effects

It's a little light on the shading in this one, but it was one of my most recent ones though.

Yeah I know what you mean by light shading, It's a problem I'm at pains to correct myself, especially considering my method relies on it heavily.

Not many people drawing by hand I see... maybe I should get a wacom tablet one of these days
