Realistic artificially rendered shadow has an important role in the field of computer graphics. Hence, it is one of the most attractive research topics in computer graphics. In this paper we present an overview of several types of shadow rendering algorithms. We present their characteristics, their development and their goals. The goal of this paper is to summarize the advantages of every shadow rendering method, so that the appropriate approach for rendering shadows can be chosen according to the specific requirements. As a practical example, or a software suggestion, we suggest the 3D design software packet Autodesk Maya, as software that uses a combination of algorithms for quality generating a realistic shadow.
