Analysis of Form – Rendering a Ball
Foundations always begin with analysis of form. Analysis of form is usually just a fancy term for a still life drawing class. Learning how to render objects can teach you how to create form and to understand light and how it interacts with objects. The purpose of this tutorial isn’t to learn how to create a photorealistic ball, but to break down and understand the different parts to rendering an object, such as the core shadow, cast shadow, reflected light, and highlight.
