    Harsh Critique Needed.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm teaching myself to draw and I'd be truly grateful to anyone who can offer some critique and general advice on what I should be doing.

    Those are some great studies. I like how because you struggled with the bottle, you made yourself draw it again twenty times from different angles. That type of attitude is going to get you far! You already have a pretty good foundation and you're only going to get better.
    Check out my sketchbook! Socially acceptable opportunity to yell at a teenage girl!

    I used a lamp in order to get a better sense of light and shadow for this value study:
