    Looks good! I think the drawing could use a little improvement accuracy wise (the cup looks like we are peering over into it, while the pitcher is more eye level and is 'tilting' to the left, thus two contradictory perspectives) Also, I noticed your highlights aren't all that bright - see if you can find the lightest light and the darkest dark in the still life as to increase your value range.

    The reflection looks good and the pitcher has a nice sense of roundness to it. Keep at it! Like to see more.

    Agreed - solid. For me the pitcher is a little broad over on that right side - easy fix to carve into it a bit (if you even think it needs it) - definitely tilts left a bit. The main thing I catch on is the cup elipse bulges up on the far side - another easy fix since you can adjust that with background. Good job!
