Thank you for your interest.

I have to draw textures in photoshop for my job.

It is just very difficult. Especially I don't know where to make it darker and lighter and why the highlights are the way they are.

I can understand if it is a circle or a cube. All the explanations I've seen are for circles and squares. I know that I can make complex shapes by combining them, but I still don't know how to draw light and shadow.

Can someone please tell me?What are your thoughts?
 Or, if there is a site or video that explains the above, could you please let me know?

The attached image is attached as an example of why I cannot understand why such light and shadows are included in the image.

I look forward to your answer.
