Thank you to Olliewood for posting this fascinating photo in the image gallery. I used my iphone as a model. I need some help from my fellow artists, because the sunglasses seem to be floating. What can I do to anchor them? Thanks in advance. Kay

Shadows seem to be on the left so a shadow on the surface from the sunglasses would help.

I think Doug is right. Notice how the keys and the phone are sitting on the surface...they have that deeper tone of green beneath them and a shadow to the left of the phone. The glasses have neither. Add them and I think you'll have solved the problem. ;)

Thanks Kay for using my photo reference from the RIL! You've been given good advice, a shadow under the glasses by just deepening to the left. You did a FANTASTIC job on this!
