lovely texture on the onion Batman :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: , agree with the great looking in effect and the shadows that need smoothing on their edges O0

 :thankyou: mea :thankyou: Cyril :thankyou: Nolan.

I'm leaving for Brisbane in about an hour or so, and when I get home in about 6 hours will look at the softening of the edges a bit more and re-scan my drawings using my better scanner. Unfortunately, M&D's MFD scanner can't quite cut it like the dedicated flatbed I have.

Sherri,

Your onion/garlic drawing is good.

I found that blending the pencil marks with a tortillion (or even a Q-tip) makes the painting look less scratchy.

Thanks Val, Sally and Mea. Mea, I will have to try the blending technique.   I am ready to move on to the next lesson!!  So much to do but not enough time.
