    For starters, it seems like the metals need more \"pop\", they\'re quite flat-looking.

    Doesn\'t quite look like there is enough shading/highlights.

    It looks kind of flat.
    Maybe that would add depth?

    ok, to make your metals pop you can shade them with inks, take a bit of black ink, water it down a lot, mix in a tiny bit of dish soap and apply it in a thin coat to the metals, wait till it dries, and maybe to it a couple more times. you\'ll notice the ink will tend to go the crevaces and darken those areas. Alos you can take a bit of black ink on a fine detail brush and very carefully blackline anywhere there are joints on the metal. After this try applying your highlight again as the washes may have toned it down a bit. Making them bright isnt so much about applying the brightest paint to them, but having a darker paint near it as well to make it appear even brighter.

    P.S. We\'re all outta cake! We only had three bits, and we didnt expect there to be such a rush.
    So my choice is \"or death\"? I\'ll have the chicken then.

    Man I love Eddie Izard...

    He\'s an interesting fellow thats for sure... I\'ve never seen The Riches,but I\'ve heard its really good. I stayed up late a couple nights ago watching his Dress To Kill stand up on You Tube with my girlfriend. Needless to say we\'ve been quoting it ever since.

    How are you doing your metallics? I\'d be happy to give some more tips, and what not to help you out, but it\'d help to know what you\'re already doing.
