More Charcoal Drawing

More charcoal drawing tonight. I chose a simple water bottle which was not so simple to draw. Especially all of the different values within the contour of the bottle.

Not much to say for this one, just wanted to focus on drawing again and try to get it as exact as possible.

Drawing Comparison


How can I improve the drawing

Happy with the drawing here, but the shadow is way off.

Value Comparison


How can I improve the values?

Not really happy with the values here, I seem to have missed a bunch in the bottle. Although the overall values are very close.
