    i find that with the W+R i really like the look of alternating the direction of the rake. so go down first. then right next to it swipe up. then down again. and more is better. make them tight together. gives more little details.

    Shaping looks good.

    Random patterns are cool IMO

    If you want uniform, u could rake one way leaving enough space for rakes in between, then switch directions, and rake the opposite. Giving you the chance to rake toward yourself the whole time
    don't wash your hands with your sammich.

    Yes work on size consistency. Use a ruler. Try keeping your vertical lines straight to. Practice spinning with your hands evenly.

    Work on small holes and even depth in your pushes.

    Nice. You might want to stick to blue because it costs less and easier to use. But you handled the red nicely.

    blue one on the end looks best due to the most details, take some time to work on your spoon shape as well.
