I think I’m going off the board here but I can’t figure out anywhere else to post this question.
But is there a tutorial that teaches how to track shadows? Or maybe there’s a photoshop/painter “cheat” where I can turn a selection into a shadow casted on a plane. I was thinking selecting and resizing and stretching… but it doesn’t seem to work as well as I hope.
I’ve tried drawing straight lines from points of a drawing to a plane on the ground buuuut… I think I’m doing my perspective wrong ;p… since I don’t see any 1-3 point perspective to be able to put into play here. I think there’s a correct way to do it, I just havn’t found a tutorial on it.
What I’m looking for is a hard edge shadow where you can identify the object without seeing it by having an exact silhouette (deformed of course to the angle of the light). Being a dynamic figure pose or an intricate pattern.
