I know there is so much to remember, but once you have the direction of your light source, think how light works. Parts of the face more towards the light will be lighter, as parts facing more away from the light will gradually get darker and darker. I still must be vigilant about watching out for that myself, once you get the knack of it, it makes a tremendous difference. You're on the track, keep working it.  O0   :clap:
Cheers, Val
