This tutorial is very nice. I recently learned about bouncing light, however, I would do the highlights like in the wrong demonstrations... Do you know why the highlights are not placed next to the edge of the objects and why the square doesn't have the highlight like in the wrong drawing, since it's a flat plan?

good questions. It is a flat plain, but light is strongest nearer the source so fades out. Spheres have no edge but bounce light back at the viewer more when there are facing the viewer (the edge of the drawing of a sphere is facing away so the light bounces elsewher.. hope that makes sense..ish? :eyepopping:

yeh know what you mean,... but it would have freaked the teacher out if a 4 yr old said.."excuse me, I think you are forgetting the cast shadow and reflective light in that anatomically incorrect rendition of a cat on that board :)

think you meant 5 o3o... aren't 3-4 year olds in preschool? This is at least a 3-4th grade art lesson anyways.
