Study: Light and Shadow relation (based on Andrew Loomis)

I re-read a part of Andrew Loomis texts about light, shadow and their relation to tone and value.
Loomis defined 4 properties of tone, but I couldnt come up with a similar visually clear concept, so I left the separation out and interpreted it all in my own way.
(It's often not easy to get what exactly is meant with tone or value)

  1. Hi Thorsten Erdt,

    thank u so much for your article .. i have been reading loomis creating illustration book ... i really don't understand what is exactly his saying about the ' TONE'(basic intensities of light versus shadow)chapter.. I think now i can understand what he try to describing..

    i have clarifying one doubt that" intensities light "

    intensities light values are not static by diffuse,hazy sun , full sun, artificial lights.. . is that right ???

    what i mean to say that shall we take key light intensity value 4 by full sun light ???

    thank you
