Thank you so much Tracey! Yes, adding those reflections made such a difference. Every time Dennis or Nolan suggests I make a change to my artwork I always take the time to correct it, and I’m always so glad afterward.

Yes, I think it also helps to me to have someone point out a positive change to learn from, or read someone elses process to changes. So it was great to see your change and the difference was "icing on the cake". ATM this is all new to me and I get overwhelmed with ALOT of things I should change & never quite sure which to do/ or doing too many and wrecking the drawing completely!

Everything that is new is overwhelming, but as you gain more experience things become more familiar.
In the beginning you want to almost blindly follow the instruction as this is laying the foundation and getting you familiar with this new skill.Soon the basics will start to make sense and the overwhelm will lessen.
The overwhelm never fully goes away as each new project you undertake has some challenges which you may not instantly be sure how to overcome.But because you know you understand the basics, you just begin the project, doing the bits you do know how to do.

By the time you get to the challenging bits you find out that using your basic knowledge is usually all it took to get the job done.
In other words you eventually learn to trust that your grounding will allow you to draw whatever job is at hand O0
