Excellent details and shades. Like I said on your other foot anatomy work, I've never see feet so well drawn in my life. Nice job

thanks! I actually wanted to draw up a series of hands because they are so expressive.

:clap: feet are so hard! they're the strangest things :giggle:

i like how it looks with the second light source excluded, actually. i'm more impressed that you were able to draw only one... i tend to just draw what I see with less understanding of the dynamics. light is so difficult to understand.

i know it sure is! I never even really thought about how light falls on form until I took this perspective class, it's all scientific really. There are angles and measurements to keep in mind.

very cool foreshortened perspective!
And folds in the skin on the foot are very nicely drawn.

thanks, I have to say that was the hardest part, making those folds convincing.

Very good study, very meticulous.
I noticed the reference had a second light source. I learned a lot from studying objects with multiple lightsources, so you might want to try it too :)

I'll be honest, I have no experience drawing things with multiple light sources so I guess that's kind of why I left one out. Do you have any suggestions for books on studying light? If so that'd be fabulous, there's nothing better than finding out why I didn't know before.

Haha, the best wayto get experience is to just do it. Even if you feel you failed, you got that experience.

I can't think of any books covering this specifically, so all I can give is some ideas to get you started.
Live reference is always a good place to learn. The old masters learned that way, so I guess it's worth something ;)
Put some objects in front of you, and take two lights to light them. Pretty easy.
I would recommend using two differently colored lights. This way you can easily tell where each light touches the object, and where the lights mix.
Some interesting objects may be:
Something round, like a ball (or an apple). This is great for getting the directions of the light.
Something metal or otherwise shiny (cutlery?). Because they reflect light differently than non-reflective objects.
Something transparent, like glass, water, or a glass full of water. This is a bit hard to draw, and to figure out why the light behaves like it does. It's very rewarding to find out, and being able to draw transparent objects well is a big achievement.
When you're done with a study, reposition the lights (maybe be bold and add another light), and study how everything changed.

And when you've mastered everything you can, don't forget to be the first to write a book on it ;)

Thanks for all the tips, I never had thought of using different colors for each light source that is a great idea actually. I'll definitely try that.

You're welcome.

I just remembered something: photography.
In particular portrait photography deals with different kinds of lighting a lot. You might want to look for some books on portrait photography.

oh thats a great idea I hadn't thought of that either. I think the more one knows about the art of light the better the artist so all advice on that subject is greatly appreciated.
