This exercise was all about the distance between or around the objects in the scene. I made it up to test my ability to discern how to shade these relationships in forms. In general, I am starting to understand and think about lighting a lot more as I shade. I don’t feel entirely confident that I nailed the lighting, but I am enjoying my continued practice and efforts with graphite.
All in all, I like that I’m getting darker tones much easier and more naturally. Also, in this pic the small light symbol on the right is the secondary light. There is a larger source above to the left, pointing down at an angle.
