Thanks! That would have been my next question. Lighting/shading is something I struggle with. I know about defining the light source and all that, but I still have a hard time knowing sometimes knowing where to place shadows and highlights to make it look good.
That gives me a good idea though; I appreciate it!
With ligh sources, its important to think something in 3 dimensions. Because if some it "deep" like say behind and ear of the back of the head.
Essentially theres 2 things to consider:
- Where does the ligh coem froma nd how powerful is it?
- What objects are the "closest" to you.
This is determined by their bulge, like cheek is closer to the watcher or hand muscles. Or the shoulder (if turn towards the wiewwer). Thos should be lighter because the light hits those spots. Rather than those which are either behind the lights way, or which are behind the point in ones body or object that are closer to the weiwwer.http://www.idrawdigital.com/wp-content/ ... urce03.pnghttp://www.artinstructionblog.com/wp-co ... glight.gifhttp://browse.deviantart.com/resources/ ... ws#/ds91bd
I think those should give atleast some idea how light and shodows work
