I had such a hard time getting the blending right for the mushroom. However, I slept on it and had another crack at it the next day - definitely much better results and, of course, having daylight helped a lot.

With the helpful drawing tips for the pinecone, this subject was a whole lot less intimidating so I decided to jump right in and took my reference from Pixabay to attempt one from scratch. I was happy enough with the pinecone that I didn't have to do it 10 times over!
