Lesson 2 - Shadows in texture & L3 texture for leaves
8:46 AM, Monday September 18th 2023
A small question regarding leaves texture in the homework. It is said that we can add some details and textures to leaves, it's not a focus but we still can do it. We should use Lesson 2 and draw only the shadows of the texture and not the lines themselves.
What I can't understand is how to draw shadows on the leaves texture. I mean, I checked so many references and haven't noticed any outstanding shadows. Sometimes they are there so I use them but basically the result gives me no better understanding of the leaf texture.
The shadows I apply mostly are just my imagination of how they would be cast but in the end, they look more like texture lines and not shadows. So it ends up looking as if I didn't use shadows at all which is not true
I'd glad to hear how you approach this and maybe I'm doing something wrong and can't see it.
Thank you for the answer!
