These are my resources for the classic ribbon shading project. Ribbon shading is a great way to apply very basic colorful shading on simple forms. Informed placement of highlights with simple value scales can achieve the illusion of shimmering satin ribbon. Perfect to do right after learning the parts of shading or right before a more advanced activity. This item features handouts, examples and instructions for creating a custom composition from start to finish. Guide the color schemes and additional elements to easily associate the drawing with an upcoming holiday.
I typically precede this project with my value and shading exercises.
