The phrase "throwing shade" has an entirely different cultural meaning, but I thought it would be fun to graphically show three versions of the effects of shading a piece of work. A different meaning to the phrase for sure.
He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.
Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.
