So you may have not spent some of my drawings have shadows and some don’t. Shadows give objects weight, they make them more three-dimensional. So in most cases when you’re trying to make something realistic you want to shadow. But sometimes when an object is really complicated or really detailed, a shadow can detract from that intricacy. (for example check out my previous post the Parsley illustration.)
However the opposite is also true; when you have an object that is very simple, shadows can really highlight the shapes and curves of the object. By repeating the shapes, elongating and distorting them you can create added interest to a very simple object like this single piece of cilantro.
