Hello Again! I made another shaded ball because I wanted to make sure I really got the fundamentals down before I continue. Please let me know what I can improve on!

Good on you for keeping at it.
I can see you are getting the shading correct. It is a nice and constant change from light to dark.
The full range of contrasts is not quite there yet though. What you want to do is darken the darkest part of the ball. For now get it as dark as you can.That will give you more tonal value changes that you can use in the central part of the ball.

The more contrast you have between the highlight and shadow part of the ball, the rounder it will look O0
