Remember kids : if you can't make pretty designs, at least make pretty lines!

2 shadow treatments

Did this quick demo for my friend Alexey today over Skype, and thought I would archive it, because it drives home something I picked up last year.

As I understand, there's only two aesthetic ways to drop shadows onto form.  They can be done in all different ways, depending on the direction of the light, but you either want something to be mostly lit, or mostly unlit.

LEFT -- given over to light
RIGHT -- given over to dark

Two schemes...they both work.  Alexey cleverly pointed out that it's the mostly lit scheme (LEFT) that would best showcase local colors, so in the world of concept illustration, perhaps there's only ONE PRACTICAL WAY to do it.  Hmm...

Jonathan Clark - Hellchick 2.0

I wanted to extend some praise to Jonathan Clark for his loving rendition of this old chestnut.

It's a shining example of what an inventive 3D artist can bring to a fairly simple 2D design. Jonathan, people like you make my life easier and more rewarding!
