Ambient Occlusion in Real Life - Lighting Question
Hey people. I wanted to do some short tutorials for a beginners forum I frequent and one is going to be about ambient occlusion.
The problem is that ambient occlusion is a 3d term, even though the effect can be seen in real life as well (for example, in the corners of a room), and I'm aiming the tutorial more at 2d artists. I was wondering what the real life term for that kind of light effect is. Diffuse reflection has been mentioned, but I don't think that encompasses AO's effect fully.
Any of you magnificent bastards know what it's called?;)
