what is texture / cast shadows really ?
3:05 PM, Tuesday November 1st 2022
Hello, like many others going through lesson 2, texture has been a difficult task for me.
My biggest obstacles when tackling texture seems to be that I do not even know what I am looking for besides "cast shadows" and I put cast shadows in quotation marks because I do not think I really know what they are anymore,
I thought they were simply the shadow cast by an object/form, however; when looking at the crumpled paper I can not seem to define cast shadows objectively enough for me to draw them,
I also do not really understand what texture is, is it a recurring pattern of some sort? Or simple stuff on top of the" main object"?
I have attached images of some of my work; besides drawing all over the place and not keeping track of proportions, I am not sure if I am on the right track or not.
Sorry for the long rant; I am sure I am probably overthinking some of this, but really pinpointing the point of the exercise would be helpful.
Thanx for reading
