Hey mmcav923, I want to give you a few pointers on your apple drawing that I hope will help you in the future. First of all, when you render, you should squint at your reference, this simplifies the values for you and helps you see just the shadows and the lights. Then, the most important thing is to look at what the light is doing. In your reference it is shinning straight down on the apple. Some of it is bouncing back up into the shadow causing what is called reflected light. I did a quick sketch to show you what I mean, I hope it helps :)

This comment was helpful to help me understand why the "ring" of core shadow happens

It's hard to tell, because it looks like you drew this from life rather than a photo. So the perspective seems off based on the photo you provided and your drawing, BUT that could have been the angle you drew it from seeing as how in your drawing I can see the top of the apple. Which also affects how I'm seeing the shadows. If I remove your photo, I would say that your shading work is off to a good start and appears mostly consistent. I'm also just being thought. 😅 Keep it up.

Thank you! Yes, I realized I uploaded the wrong angle (oops). This one is more accurate.

It looks pretty good, but the bottom half of the shape doesn’t seem totally accurate and that lines of the shadows seem really harsh. However the harsh lines of the shading look like they could be intentional so if that’s the case ignore my last statement!

Agreed with you about the bottom half - thanks for your feedback!
