Exercise from ctrlpaint.com: Form, Value, and Light

This time the goal is to paint an ear with values (shadow and light).

Here are my two attempts:

oreille-1

oreille-2

I’m not satisfied with either of these tries. But hey, that will do the trick for now. I have to progress on painting with a tablet and a pen.
