Psychobuddy: Thanks. Actually I hadn't think of it that way at all. Now that I have finally thought about it it does make sense,
as the bright rim light indicates that viewer is seeing the shadow side of the object and thus that gives justification for the low contrast.
CONtra: Will try though life tries to slow me down.
Joe777k7: Thanks for checking out my sketchbook bro.
Glad you enjoyed my stuff.
So...I was out of the game for few days. Reason? Well, I catched a cold so I needed another set of antibiotics to fight the damn sinusitis. So I visited a doctor, got my antibiotics...all good all good...
but then as I was stepping out of the god damn building my ankle flipped, I lost my balance and fell forward. My galaxy note, that was on my left hand, went flying and hit the concrete while my right arm took the full brunt of the impact.
No broken bones but my forearm/elbow got a shock of the lifetime. It's hurting (not terribly but still plenty enough) and doesn't take rotaing movement of the forearm too kindly, but it is getting better.
in any case I read some Andrew loomis books and had to do this small value experiment. Possibly not the smartest move, but atleast I can say I'm literally suffering for my art.
