Here's were I am with this.
The gold NMM has been done to about a level I think I am happy at. It took a lot of work with the blending to get it all looking smooth. Lots of backwards and forwards working and re-working areas but it looks done.
The sword has been another issue.
This was about my fourth attempt and I still aren't completely happy.
I think it needs some more highlight spots which I will have a think about.
Likewise with the face, just a few more glazes to bring out the contrast.
