I'm just rewriting these points and feel like I don't really understand some of the latter ones. I.e;
Harder on hard forms, softer on soft forms
Can you give an example of this? I'm confused. Lead would be a hard form with a softness to it's edges, but jelly (or jello) would be soft with a hard edge. Or am I getting this confused with spectoral highlights?
Harder on flat forms, softer on rounded forms
Like a cardboard box compared with a ball? A D20 compared with a marble?
Harder on thin forms, softer on thick forms
Like a thin straw compared with a thick pipe or barrel?
Also (and this is going to sound stupid but...) what is the definition of an edge? Would it be safe to describe an edge as,
'A transition caused by either light hitting adjacent surfaces of a single object or adjacent overlapping objects/surfaces'?
I know this was posted sometime ago so anyone want to have a go at it?
