Looks great, good depth, well done :clap: :clap: :clap:

I feel you can still go darker on the mouth area - darken the right hand side some more.

Also on the right where the arm and body meet, it has a darker area, but it would gradually go darker and darker toward the arm as it curls away from the light, so just continue to shade darker until it meets the arm. In other words you have two distinct tonal values, the broad one on the body and a thin dark one where the arm and body meet. You want to fade that dark into the other shadow so they form a gradual change O0

Nicely done Labtec! A few more darks would make it really pop. Look for areas where you can deepen the shadow.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Labtec,

Good work.  Val is right - punch up the darks and it will make a difference.  Ex.that tree behind the house.  It looks flat - a couple different darker values of squiggles blended in will make it look fuller.  Same for the grasses along the front.  They are very well drawn, though.

Barn well drawn  :clap: :clap: :clap: What worries me is the tree behind the barn. You suddenly relaxed your concentration and just scribbled and stopped drawing.
