Drawing shadows on faces is hard? No, it isn't, if you know these basic shadow patterns! Light and shadow follow basic rules. Shadows appear where no direct light hits. Because the light source is usually above the head, it creates recurring shadow patterns on a face that you see again and again.

Knowing these shadow patterns can make shading a face so much easier. It can make for amazing comic/cartoon shading – but it can also help you lay down a good base for realistic shading. It's the most basic form of shading, where you categorize everything using just two values: light and shadow.
