Okay, this is my current college project. It's a perspective piece of part of an assemblage. We have to work out where the lights and darks are based on a chosen angle and direction of light.
As you can see I've started on the trinket box (Left) And part of a little voodoo doll keyring (Centre) But I'm struggling with its hemisphere head and half-cone hat. Can anyone help out with these problem areas?
(Bear in mind that half of the colours are still only a wash. And feel free to point out any other glaring mistakes!)

A brief suggestion: mentally put yourself where the light is and think about what places are now impossible for you to see.
Shadow casting is hidden surface removal from the POV of a light.
