Last value study before I go back to working on personal work. Overall I feel like I’ve come out of this with a better understanding of what I need to focus on to improve. Still got a long way to go though. Doing stuff like this every week will be vital.

Lessons learned.
Figure out what needs to be detailed and what doesn’t. Not everything deserves the same amount of time spent on it and if you try, you’ll fail. I tried and now it’s super obvious where I ran out of time.
Stop worrying about smoothness, the actual placement of light and dark is far more important.
Seriously, stop doing studies of photos with tons of goddamn fucking baskets.
