I don't know why "Ambient Luminosity" is such a wonderful art term D:

... ah yeah, it has nearly nothing to do with the term you just posted, but maybe you could help me with a term in english, I'm sure its should exist... but I don't know it.. in spanish it's "claroscuro" (light/dark) and it's used to explain something about the balance of light and shadow (and no, it's not "contrast" D: )

Sankyu if you can help :heart:
