The Five Elements of Shading
To draw realistically, you must understand how lighting affects form. There are five elements of shading that are essential to realistically depicting an object’s form. If any of these elements are missing, your work will appear flat. However, with the correct placement of light and dark tones, you can draw just about anything.
But how do you know how dark is dark and light is light? Using a simple five-box scale of values can help you decide on the depth of tone. Each tone on the scale represents one of the five elements of shading.
This is the darkest tone on your drawing. It is always opposite the light source. In the case of the sphere, it is underneath, where the sphere meets the surface. This area is void of light because, as the sphere protrudes, it blocks light and casts a shadow
This dark gray is not at the very edge of the object. It is opposite the light source where the sphere curves away from you.
This is a medium gray. It’s the area of the sphere that’s in neither direct light nor shadows.
4 Reflected Light
This is a light gray. Reflected light is always found along the edge of an object and separates the darkness of the shadow edge from the darkness of the cast shadow.5 Full Light
This is the white area, where the light source is hitting the sphere at full strength.
