Awww, thank you! That's really kind of you. Well, when it comes to drawing, I don't have many tips. It's all about concentration and practice. Although I do measure some pics before I start drawing them. But about the shading, I have recently started using q-tips, tissues and makeup facial cotton. And it really helps. My drawings have become really soft thanks to that.
I used what I usually use to draw: Caran d'ache graphite pencils. [link] I just love those pencils. Also to do the shading, I use tissues, and make-up cotton. The size of the sheet of paper I used is A3, and it's meant to be used for watercolor paintings, but I really love the texture of it, so I use it for my graphite drawings as well. xD
