For the next couple of days, the fourth grade students will be working on shading cylinders on a worksheet, trying to make them look like the No. 10 can seen in the picture above. This is very difficult, so try not to be discouraged! Try to identify the Highlight, the Half Tones, the Core Shadow, and the Reflected Light (or reflected shadow, as the case may be) on the can. Notice that the Cast Shadow is not the same shape as the can.
As I said, the can is very difficult to do, but it should prepare you for the project of Shading a Sphere. After the canister, the sphere will feel incredibly easy and will look fantastic!
