    Reference, basic still life shapes

    Hi everyone!

    I've been struggling to find good reference images for simple shapes (cubes, spheres etc). Therefore I made some simple renderings myself. Nothing fancy but they show basic light properties like core shadow, bounce light, cast shadows.. Hope they are helpful when studying shading!

    It's pretty silly when you think about it isn't it? I do think 3D programs can be useful for understanding light and material, but every object in the entire world shows basic properties of core shadow and bounce light and cast shadow, and are 100 percent accurate 100 percent of the time.
