Do you think about the lighting when doing small thumbnails? Or more of using shapes in different values?

Thanks for the help! :)

Hello Pat,

I don't think about lighting when I do thumbnails. Thumbnail stage- mostly focus on shapes and how the components are put together, each parts potentially are made of different materials which could reflect lights differently. Also thumbnail stage is mainly put out ideas and various designs as a group, I won't know which one will end up as a small units versus gigantic mothership.
However probably second phase of polishing the thumbnails - I start to think about where the lights-neon or nav lights which could lit up local areas.
