    hey stephen,

    easiest way to understand it is just to have a friend sit down or get into a pose you need and then shine a light on them. try it from different angles and observe what happens. remember, the best reference is from life.

    peace,
    empty

    There is a general solution...draw the scene from the light's point of view; your shadowed surfaces will be hidden by overlapping.

    But draw from life as much as possible.
