Got a guide to something that helped you out, or tips and tricks that you've picked up along the line? Feel free to post them here. There are enough artists on the site that I believe being able to share experience and help each other improve would be appreciated by all.

I have a tip on shading ^^
I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil and when you're shading if you put the light source (drawing on paper first of course) to the top right, top left, left or right of the sketch the shadows cast the darkest are shading points ^^

I do want to add onto Tyranno's tips, but do experiment with shading, light sources don't always come from corners. They can come from behind the character, in front of the character, etc. Don't just use black as a shading tool, try some dark cold blue, or a warm brown. Using different colors to shade [and lowering opacity] can affect the atmosphere, whether you want to make it jolly and happy or sad and heartbreaking. Keep in mind about lighting, light isn't always white either, there can be a yellow hue for light [example is a lamp perhaps], a light blue hue [computer screen, tv, etc.], and on forth.

In a nutshell, lighting and shading isn't always black and white, and light sources don't always appear on the corners. These affect the atmosphere of the picture greatly and helps you put the impact on your viewers.
