Shape & Value Basics

Shape can be considered to be the combination of line and space. The word volume describes the shape of an object that is made to look three-dimmensional.

Value, when talking about design, refers to variation of the lights and the darks of the drawing. Chiaroscuro refers not only to the value of an object but also to how the light source in the drawing affects the appearance of an object that has three-dimemsional space.
