Mark,

Welcome to Paintbasket.

Happy to see that you have started with the Let's Draw course.  It has been invaluable to so many of us.

You are off to a great start with the berries.

Look forward to seeing more!

Nice job! O0 O0 I would work on the shadows cast by the berries. The shadows should be darkest closer to the berry and fade as it moves away. Also, the edges of the shadows should fade away without any hard edges. Keep up the good work. You're doing well.

Great job with the berries Mark :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
You have good contrast (darks) in each berry, well done.
I do think you can fade the dark away a bit slower towards the highlight as the highlight area seems a bit wide O0

PS - Next time when you paste your SMG code, just paste it - no need to click the image button first. The system will automatically do that for you when you paste the SMG code O0

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Mark you did well on your berries. Just need to darken areas as suggested and it will be perfect.
