Yay first attempt at shades!
This is the same picture as [link]
but now with flat shades.
At first I wanted to try gradient shading, but that didn't really work out that well. Then I tried flat shading and it turned out very well

(These are the various stages used in the process of this piece [link]
(I wish to be critiqued on which parts I can improve on and for the one doing the critique to show how to make the improvements)
