Thread: Trying to get better at NMM

    Another hour logged on my continuing persuit of NMM, got a lot of help from abidel. I'm not sure why the reflection on the front-middle of the shoulder pad need to be there, but it looks right.

    Suggestions please!

    Really good NMM......always amazed by it, but too scared to have a go myself.

    Seems you have the technique and colours right.....all I would say is I think you need to improve on the smoothness, softer transitions, but grasping the concept is the hardest part.

    Excellent work

    I'll throw in my 2 cents (good job so far btw). I think it has to do with the white area's. Look at the right (his right) upper band of the chest piece armor. The blending is smooth up to the white highlight which is a touch under blended. It is making the white pop and giving is a chalky look. I notice it a bit on the upper most part of the shield where you can almost draw a line between white and light blues. Once you can no longer tell where is ends and begins will give you the effect. This is challenging to do and I am still working to master it myself.
