    I always have trouble shading the pinch in a sketch, does anyone have any suggestions?

    As a no-picture-drawing individual, I thought that was a pretty neat web site. I'm always fascinated with how people draw things. What appears to be so complicated (to me) can seem so simple for someone who knows how to draw. Thanks for the link.

    Where the light hits compound curves and indentations can be difficult to capture in drawing. Try taking some photos and working from them, rather than from a "live" hat (model)- this can sometimes be a little easier, as the "image" is defined, static and perhaps demandss less mind power and causes less distraction when your mind is actually occupied drawing.
    Having something of an understanding of what happens with light and shade will help you in rendering something close to reality.
    Practice, practice, practice... and use the "right side".
