  2. Can we have a book on lighting? Or how to create our light concept on drawings? Thanks

    1. Color and Light by James Gurney.
      It goes over different forms of light (spotlight, window light, luminescence, edge lighting, reflected light etc). I’m sure there’s a YouTube video singing its praises.
