Hi guys,

This is my second attempt at the picture.......I didnt know there were different hand grips (print error). I think it came out ok  O0 but still a long way to go.


I'm sure someone can tell me why it is upside down ;)

Hi and  :bigwelcome:    When taking photos of your work, you want to have the camera directly above the piece. That way we can see your drawing/painting in proper perspective. As to why it is coming through upside down ..... are you holding the phone/camera right side up when you take the photo? Otherwise I've no idea  :confused:   maybe someone else could help with that.
Cheers, Val

 :welcome: to Paintbasket Leanne.

Val, this too has happened to me.
I've found that if I resize the photo, it will post right side up.

Hi all, I believe Nolan and my dad went to the same Joke school  ::)

Onto the berries today, I learnt alot...mainly on what I've learnt so far. What do you think?

you have done a great job on the drawing so far Dragon :clap: :clap: :clap:
You can still shade the berries themselves - make the dark darker and then make the transition between mid tone and highlight smoother (you should not see where the one ends and the other starts)

Hi Thanks Nolan will work on that 2moz but just a quick question, was I supposed to use the copied berry drawing from the Light box/window trick or free hand. I did mine freehand!

it is up to you. If you are already confident with freehand drawing, then by all means do so. Just remember that your final artwork is only as good as the initial drawing so it needs to be accurate O0
