64. instead of painting shadow, carve light

look at this

shadow helps add depth to a scene. but it can be a struggle to add shadows well. so that first video says to add a dark layer and carve out where the light hits, then add detail.

meanwhile this video

is about adding shadow lines that work with the contours of the subject. these curving lines naturally add depth.

Question: which technique is better?
