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
As noted here in the assignment section where we mention the first row should be crumpled paper, I explain that this is actually something of a special case. Perhaps you missed this section, so give it another read - hopefully it will clarify your concerns.
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"?
Texture is not a recurring pattern - it is referring to the smaller forms arranged along the surface of another object - so in your words, it's the "simple stuff on top of the main object". These notes from the lesson should help explain the process of how we engage with our references to extract that 3D information and use it to make decisions on how we design our shadow shapes.
