Hello, Dutchman introducing

Hello everyone,

My name is Robert, I’m 18 years old and I live in the Netherlands. It already has been 6 years ago that I’ve stopped drawing.
Drawing always helped me to get my mind off of something; it really is a good way to get avoid being stressed (of course only when it all goes like planned :wink: ).
After seeing a couple of ‘speed drawings’ on youtube, I realized that I really missed drawing. So I’m ready to start again with this big passion of mine. In contradict to my drawing period 6 years ago, I’m now going to try to draw digital. I already bought a Bamboo Fun Tablet to work on.

One strong point of my drawings always were the proportions, so everything goes good during that drawing stage. But now that I want to draw portraits digitally, I’m struggling with shading. How have you learned how to shade properly (digitally)? Do you ‘blur’ areas, or do you use the ‘dodge’ and ‘burn’ tool?
Also to make a realistic digital drawing, I’ve noticed that you have to avoid drawing lines. Instead you have to work with values in color, a technique that Straycat masters as no other. How does he do this? You never see any lines in is digital artwork. His work is just stunning, nothing but respect for his work. I can only hope that I can someday even get near his quality work.

So if someone has some tips (ways that you do it yourself) or helpful sites for me about digital shading, than those are more than welcome :).
