hello–i’m trying to implement a realistic shadow effect for my 2D character sprite (example below):
instead of just making the sprite have the shadow and ball together, i’d like to make the shadowing realistic, so that the shadow will always appear to the bottom left of the (as if a “real” light was shining on it):
as you can see, the ball was rotated 45 degrees to the left, but still has an accurate shadow underneath.
i hope i didn’t make this sound more complicated then it really is–the ball’s “shadow” is just a black circle under the red/green ball with the opacity turned down.
how can i achieve this? thank you.
let me know if i can clarify anything.
