Practice: Egg Sketches
In this first project, you’ll draw simple eggs with the first four modeling factors: Form Light, Form Shadow, the Terminator, and Cast Shadow.
Draw a few egg shapes on a sheet of paper.
Draw a terminator ellipse on each egg.
(Don't worry about drawing the terminator "correctly", just separate the egg shapes into two halves.)
Shade one half of each egg with a flat tone.
Draw a cast shadow for each egg.
(Again, don't worry about getting it right, just estimate it for now.)
Add a flat tone to the cast shadows.
Take a photograph of your sketches.

Meet these Challenges
Use the same flat tone for the form shadow area and for the contour/outline.
Draw at least 4 eggs.
This project should take 5-15 minutes to complete.
This is not a rendering exercise. Keep it simple: just draw the form light, form shadow, terminator, and cast shadow.
