I desperately wanted to create these gems on an elaborate Zentangle I just completed, but I wasn't confident I knew how. I didn't want to destroy my artwork by messing up on my gems, so I started searching online for tutorials on YouTube and websites on how to create these realistic "zengems". I found some great sources, but NOTHING was as thorough as this e-book! I am SO THRILLED with this purchase. I have been drawing some amazing-looking gems for the past few days...and I just bought the Shading Case Studies (haven't had a chance to peruse it yet), and I definitely want all the rest of Eni Oken's shading & coloring e-books when I can afford them! You will NOT be disappointed!

What shall I say, she did it again. This is BRILLIANT! I think this is my fourth or fifth shading book and while all have been great and helpful, this tops everything in my opinion. I raise my hat to you, Eni, you're the true Queen of Shading for me. Thank yoU!

I just started with coloring gems and this tutorial really helped me allot with it. Even the first try of coloring a gem worked out fine! Can really recommend this e-book.
