Re: Bad 'hat'
If you can see both eyes and there is a clear highlight, it is not too hard to estimate where the main light source is located in relation to the subject (left, right, up, down). Then, if you imagine a straight line from that light source to the subject, you can extend that line past anything that may block the light (like your bridge hat) and estimate where the shadows should naturally fall.
Nice work, and the pig is really cute.
Re: Bad 'hat'
Re ears - I think I muddled up my left with the pigs left! Yes, I see the stripy shadow ear. I could do a flip with the good ear and replace it, but it won't be easy - I am very fond of those shadows!
Re eyes - thank you for that explanation. I will certainly try in future to see if I can learn how to use that as a guide. I need to get some practice.
Thanks again for your help.
