This is a short clip from a 20-minute bonus feature I just added to one of the lessons in my "Fundamentals of Light" class at Schoolism.

I took this class, it's condensed with a crazy amount of information about lighting and colors. I didn't encounter a better one. I'm still processing it to make better art.
It made me realize clearly that understanding how nature works makes your art more beautiful (besides making it believable).
It's definitely a class that made a huge difference in my learning path.

I took your class a couple years ago, by far it's the best compilation of information on lighting for the artist that I've come across. I've read a lot of books on color and light, taken a few other online classes as well as college courses on the subject, and this is the most well-rounded class I've found. You really do a fantastic job at breaking down a complicated subject matter and making it easy to understand and learn, I highly recommend it for anyone struggling with light and color. With the subscription at schoolism, I'd like to take it again, I think it's one of those you could watch multiple times and still learn from.

Love your course. Can you do a video or picture explaining how light hits a cube and makes 3 different values.. I have your course, but I'm still confused. Maybe I'm slow? But I'd love to see you render and explain how to light hits a cube, the way you did with a sphere in your course. Best course ever, btw.

Cubes are super easy. If you create a sphere test, all you need to do it pick the values for those three visible planes of the cube and spread those over the corresponding surfaces.

I want to understand how to light the geo forms (cube, sphere, cylinder, and cone) from any lighting direction and be able to understand how the light rays are creating the different values. You did a great job at explaining it with the sphere. Do you recommend any books? I also would of loved if you explained how to render the 5 form changes :) . I'm curious if this stuff is in your other lighting course?

You could look at Scott Robertson's book "How to Render." It's pretty good but doesn't talk much about how to get accurate falloff between the center light and terminator.

Thank you so much for the response. What I'm having trouble with is understanding how light rays react with the 3 cube surfaces to give you three different tones. I have a subscription with Schoolism. Do you explain light on the geo forms better on your other lighting course? I'm taking fundamentals right now.

Maybe I'll add an explanation to my course that talks about this. I can think of a way to describe it without showing an example.
