Did a second attempt after watching the demo. I'm having difficulties making the shade and dark half-tone not appear as though they're the same value. I feel as if when I fill in the shade more, it becomes almost indistinguishable from the darker shade. But when I fill in the darker shade more, it begins looking very spotty and uneven.
First attempt! I was uncertain on how detailed I was supposed to be and ended up not being detailed enough. I just watched the demo and have written down a lot of pointers on what I can improve for my next attempt. Very excited to give this another go!
