Welcome to Librarium Online!
A bigger picture would be a nice start. this is tiny...
Agreed, we need bigger pics. From what i can see, i'm liking the red, silver, gold combination!
Looking good! it could do with a bit more shading on the metals, apart from that, nice baroque looking model.
Ah, okay, much better. The base needs more work on it, obviously, but the rest of the mini seems quite nicely painted. The coverage of the paint seems kinda lacking, as there are numerous blue spots sticking out, unless this was intentional. Also, add some highlights (maybe white+silver).
Can you help me how to do shading it without loosing metal colour
Hmmm but the blue sticking out from the groin doesn't seem intentional, best trim that away. Also, apply some thinned down black ink in the fine pannel lines, eyes, gold detailing and rivets. You could also mix in a little bit of blue, purple or brown ink to add some subtle shade. The model looks just a bit flat now as it is, some subtle ink shading will add some depth.
large metal surfaces are best shaded using thinned down inks, after that dried build up the highlights by drybrushing two or three incrementally lighter metal mixes. Make sure your brush is almost dry when you do this. After this you might touch up some 'coloured' areas as they will unintentionally receive some of the metal drybrusing.
