Need help with shadows Answered
I've been working on a few black and white pieces, and I seem to be having issues with shadows and illuminations. The ones I already have in place make the image distorted and even more eerie than their supposed to be. I know that I do use grey in the pieces, but I want shadows to be a pure black and lighting to be a pure white.
Can anyone give me some advice on how to fix this issue?
The man with the umbrella is the most troublesome. I cant quite figure out how to illuminate the umbrella, and the shadow he makes is first off, the incorrect shape, but secondly, in grey. I did that to try and distinguish the difference between his feet and his shadow, but I would still like an actual black shadow in the finished product. (help!)
The children have a really creepy feeling to them. I want to lighten up the whole mood of the piece by just a notch, and I think the way of doing that would be to add more light to the shadows on their clothing.
I would appreciate any help you can give me.
