Character_Value Study

Character_Value Study-8df3d279

Hi Matt,

I did a value study of a character  for a professional character designer who usually do a value painting before he adds colors to them.

I manipulated the shadow value and made it darker, but I used the same value for the local color because I did halfway to black for the shadow value.

1-I would like to ask why the artist did the shadows very subtle and not dark and contrasty? Do my shadows value looks good or too dark?

2-In regards to the arrow that represents the light direction, the time supposed to be 11 am or not?  If the time 1 o’clock or 4 o’clock’ would be it the same values, but the light direction would be the opposite to the right?

3- Could you please check the knee area, it looks weird also in the Reference!
