In this example the "profile" line is used only on the SHADE side and UNDER CUT edges of the form, allowing the highlight or glare side of to BURNOUT more dramatically.

Notice there are two shadows expressed here. Notice the
short one does not accurately describe the cutouts on the form, while the long shadow, while not technically perfect, helps to describe
the form more.

Feel free to "fade out", and blur the edges more the longer the shadow
is from the form.

Notice the increased rounding at the base. When a form has a rounded base, the shadow "leaks" out around the base slightly. It's common to see this on things like sports bottles.
