Blueberries for Me

We're having fun again this week at Stamp, Scrap, & Doodle Saturday with a great challenge!  Create a get well or congratulations card.  Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!  Our Sponsor is Digi Doodles and they were kind enough to give all of us on the SSDS design team some of their images to use in this weeks challenge.
I was chatting with a friend last week about using my Copics and how I wished I could take the certification.  The timing for the classes is always bad for me, nevermind the cost of staying at the hotel.  She's had the chance for training, but thinks the best way to learn is to keep playing with them.  So I decided to really take a chance with this card.  I'm not always good at figuring out shading.  I get the "light source" concept, but I can't seem to picture it.  This time around I thought I'd use an already colored image to help guide my coloring.  I did a Google image search for blueberries and found this image:
I can't read the artist's name, but I found it here.  I'm pleased with how close I got with my image to this one and will probably try it again to see if I can get even closer.  I'm not usually one for copying exactly, but in this case I figure it will help me learn the technique.  Kinda like the art students who go to museums.  Wouldn't it be fun to go to art school?!?  I digress.  Please join us this week at SSDS and you'll have a chance to win a $10 GC from Digi Doodles.
