Shading is such a complex subject. Since I'm planning on fantasy landscapes -- that is a landscape that looks relatively real, but is entirely imaginary with plants, trees and animals that are simplified and funky.
So I thought the shading should also be simplified and funky. If the landscape in question has the sun in it, why have the sun point out the actual direction of the light. I wouldn't recommend this for a truly realistic drawing, but it's actually not far off.
Here's a little more info on the way this would work. So far, I'm still playing with ideas and trying to decide exactly how make my fantasy landscapes easiest for you. Any questions? Suggestions?
