slanwar,

Wow, pretty good for a beginner or have you had some experience?

Just be careful not to make things look like they are outlined - check that top middle berry.

Looking forward to more of your work.

 :heeha: Wow, your first drawing and a freehand to boot!!! Well done you!  O0     :clap: :clap: :clap:

The shadings on the berries need to be softened to take away the striped effect. By softening the values you will also gain more spherical 3D effect. Blending to get the correct variations does take a bit of practice, but you are well on the way.
Cheers, Val

Well done! Careful for the outlines.

I have to say this. Your profile pic of the dog looks just like my beautiful Chloe.  :smitten:

Thank you. I don't have any experience and when I was a kid I used to draw but my dad was against because he didn't see any future for me, well my dad was an artist himself (oil paint, drawing, etc) and he had a lot of difficulties to pay bills, now with 1 kid in college and the other one already done college I found some time to learn drawing.

Thank you. I think I'm going to draw circles and blend them in to a spheres until  they look good.
