What are you supposed to do with fur or bright textures? Dissections - Lesson 2
12:11 AM, Saturday April 23rd 2022
Something where i am incredibly confused (maybe for not really understanding a concept) is that in Lesson 2 - Dissections we are supposed to study from our references and apply it to our sausage form, only using the shadows the references cast.
Later in the lesson it says that we can use anything as a texture, but if that's the case, what do we exactly do when facing agaisnt fur or really bright textures? i mean, i might be not understanding something, but, fur is pretty much forms instead of shadows, sure there could be shadows deep on the fur, but i do that, i am 100% convinced the result would NOT look anything like fur.
Also, in the lesson, one of the images has a piece of meat that looks really bright, making me wonder what "cast shadows" could i do from there? i mean, the image looks bright enough that i might not have any shadows at all, so what are we really capturing here?.
Everything has a texture, but some references look like they cast almost no shadows, in those cases, what can we do? ignore the reference?
It's there something that i'm not understanding here?
