Lighting and Shadows

Click on the image to enlarge
All lighting information can be split up into 3 broad parts:
1. Highlights (the whites)
2. Halftones (the grays)
3. Shadows (the blacks)

There are two other portions that you need to keep in mind:
4. Reflections
5. Casting Shadow (the masses that are responsible for casting Shadows)

So ideally... the way that we have been going about it... we attempt the drawing in roughly two phases. Blocking (Identifying and outlining all the portions from 1-5) AND Final Light.

Also use the side of the pencil for drawing shadows, tones and values, and the sharp point for the contours
