This was my attempt at the berries and very nearly gave up. As you can see the paper ended up a real mess and I was just so frustrated. Any way I let it go for a couple of days and moved on to the planes and that got me hooked.

Really enjoyed this exercise, even though it was a real challenge.

This looks good.  Once you add a few more darker values it will be great. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Great job so far :clap: :clap: :clap:

You can still add more contrast to the berries themselves - the more contrast the rounder they look. To do that darken the dark areas then also lift out a highlight on each using your eraser O0

Thankyou for your comments Nolan. I’ll leave this one alone as a reminder of the struggle, but will attempt it again once I become more proficient

This was really enjoyable and didn’t take very long. I was so surprised as it looked very complicated.

You have done a great job, the fish is nice and round :clap: :clap: :clap:

Scumbling is a lot more fun than you initially think O0

your teddy is spot on Diana :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

I feel the cup can get more hatching to show the rounding better though - this should be easy now that you have completed the teddy and understand the concept better O0 :gl:
