Reference photos for tonal drawing

Photos of simple shapes in harsh lighting, suitable for practicing tonal drawing and as lighting references.


Maybe I’’m just not great at googling, but I always had trouble finding photos of simple shapes like balls and cubes that I could use to practice tonal drawing. So I made these shapes out of white Play-Doh, used a spotlight-type desk lamp to light them, then converted the result to grayscale. Use them freely in your own drawings.

That's all there is, there isn't any more.
