I focused on blending techniques on the leather armor bits, shading from green to brown to yellow, trying for smooth changes
The sword is my very first attempt at NMM (non-metallic-metal). It is quite difficult! But I am determined to improve it, so the next mini I'm going to work on has predominately metal armor.
The stones imbedded in the leather armor I attempted to create a "opal" like effect. Considering that my materials consist of ancient paints and shaggy brushes only, I was happy with the result.
