 Hi Everyone,
  I finished my first drawing a couple of days ago.  I've taken a couple art classes but didn't really understand which pencil to use. I watched a sample video by Nolan and was hooked. :)

Welcome.  Learning to draw is a life-changing event.

I saw your berries in your gallery.  Off to a good start.  Just remember the key principle - dark against light.  Look at the corners in your leaves (where the veins meet).  Make sure that is where it is darker than the rest of the leaf, then blend it out.

I took the liberty of moving your photo here.  I hope that was okay.


Looking forward to seeing more!

Hi TFence, I've not long ago started also & I'm really enjoying the course. Your berries look great & it's great that there are amazing artists who give us the time to suggest where our drawings can do with +ve changes.  :)I look forward to seeing your next drawings.  :)

your berries are looking good TFence :clap: :clap: :clap:
What you want to work on now is getting the transition between the dark and highlight areas. This is usually achieved by pressing lighter and lighter on the pencil O0
