Hi, I have been searching for some tips on how to achieve shadows on a face I'm painting, I can't quite comprehend the fall of shadows, could anyone point me to some tutorial or reading matter please? Thank you in advance.

My suggestion is the following:
1. start with an image having the characteristics of your painting, for instance
Attachment:
1-starting.jpg
1-starting.jpg [ 149.17 KiB | Viewed 396 times ]

2. desaturate (luminosity)

3. posterize (6)
Attachment:
3-posterized6.jpg

By this way you see the primary areas of shadows and the relative intensity

Marcobucci is a great teacher and it is worth looking at all his videos. He has a fun approach to light and colour that really works and explains it well.

EDIT: This looks like a good series. I've learnt something today :)

Thanks Erisian, really appreciate your help, I'll be watching those more than once, although short, he packs a lot in while keeping it simple. I guess he's using keystroke shortcuts for his tool options (Griatch's recommendation from get-go), I really must sort that out.

Have a look here:

https://sketchfab.com/models/7d3d7fa9b6e54a2aa448d574b340c3ef

Using the mouse changes angle, shift-click=up and down, Ctrl-click=zoom in and out and Alt-click adjusts the lighting. There may be more functions I haven't discovered yet.
