WIP: LOTR Merry Part 3

Working on highlights and shading of the clothing.

I worked mainly on highlights and shadows last night.  Highlights were a challenge due to the scale of the model, but it’s a fun test.

The shadows were applied with a 50:50 mix of basecoat and Abaddon Black, and the highlights were a simple 50:50 mix of basecoat and White Scar.  I think the highlights on the trousers may need some glazing to take some of the starkness out of them.

These aren’t my best WIP photographs – I experimented with putting the desk lamp a little closer to provide more light to the image, but unfortunately I think it’s overexposed.  This means the highlights have been washed out in some places, particularly on the waistcoat.
