A Drawing A Day 1188

Progress Shot 02

Here I start to fill in a basic tone with a small indication of a stronger contrast at the edges of the shaded areas where the light meets the dark. The final lighting effect I am after is a fairly contrasty artificially lit environment. Like sitting under a light bulb in a room with white walls, none of which are too close to make a dramatic reflected light effect, but noticeable in the final rendering.
