 :clap: :clap: :clap:   WOW, Jennylynn, a fantastic glass.  You did a great job of the shading. My only criticism would be that the base is slightly off center or not quite round but that is easily fixed. The glass looks so realistic and I think you did a darned good job.   Can't wait for the replay to do the lesson.  It looks so interesting as they all are.  Anyway, you can be proud of yourself for you did a fine job for sure.

super job Jennylynn, well done :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

It is just the base that is a little off  - on the bottom left hand side move it up. On the bottom right hand side move it down. Ttry to get symmetry between the top and bottom halves when you stand back.
I know the base is not easy, but you can do it O0

I am posting this but not happy with the camera rendition.   :knuppel2: 
My drawing looks much lighter and nicer than what one can see here. 
I do think however that I could have started with a darker background, but hurried to try and catch up with Nolan, so its a bit light.  NOT this Light though  :thumbdown:

See I really didn't want to post the Picture    :2funny:

Well done Sue and Carol :clap: :clap: :clap:
Carol, as you started off with a light background, you will need to add the missing shadings into the glass in order to give yourself enough contrast for the highlights to show

 :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:  Congratulations to all you glass drawing ladies for you have done such a good job.


Yes, Jennylynn, I know how frustrating it is when you take the picture and see what things you could change but it is all a learning experience and besides, you have done a marvellous job as always and the little problem is easily fixed so no worries.  Overall, as I said, you did a splendid job as always.


Sue and Carol, a good job done too.

Carol, may I ask how you get your photos to come out so nice, so you scan them into computer or what???
