  1. This is the foundation for all shading decisions. First, make a distinction between the light family and the shadow family (shown above). The light family consists of all areas that are touched directly by the light source. A good way to test this is to look at your subject from the direction of the light, so you can see what the light can see . The shadow family consists of everything that is hidden from the light source. This includes all shadows and reflected light areas.
