    Highlighting Help

    Hi all...

    I bought a Maneater Ninja a while back and i proceeded to lose his head. So i converted a butcher head, and sculpted on a hood and face mask. The only problem is, I suck at highlighting, especially black, and was wondering if anyone could give me advice on what paints to use to highlight and where i should apply it would be great.

    First off you need to decide where your "light" is coming from, and then progressively highlight in mid tones (codex grey) to highlights (fortress grey.) Here is a very good guide from the masters. Though it works for all kinds of highlighting in black. Hope that helps

    I did my maneater ninja in blues, which worked pretty well. It's much easier to work with IMO than black.
