Let’s get into shading a drawing! We’ll explore form, planes and light on form. I’ll guide you through making an object feeling 3 dimensional by indicating the elements of light on form – highlight, center light, halftones, core shadow, reflected light, cast shadow and occlusion shadow. How the local value of the object effects the tones. And how does intensity of light affect tones.

In this Premium Lesson I describe my complete process of drawing a figure, step by step.
