Contact Shadow

Hi,

I'm trying to create a composite where the leg breaks the bar but I'm having a difficult time in creating a believable shadow on the bar and on the leg, can anyone help with any ideas or point to a tutorial or something?

Thanks

Put a shoe next to the object with similar light condition, and you will see how it should be. If you can't draw what you see, take a picture and copy a shadow via luminosity mask.

This is why it's called art. Tulack's idea is good, and in time you might become better at learning how the light reacts.

That's a nice idea, I'll try that. Thanks

Re: Contact Shadow

Tulack's comment is good but in this case since the light is coming from the right, there would be very minimal shadow on the bar.
