For part of my art course, I need to study 'everyday objects'. For my first study, I picked my favourite pendant, and it's not turning out well.. But it is a pretty good practise for.. shiny-shading. Anyway, any advice on how to make this look shinier, and more realistic would be amazing. (Still a WIP, I just want some help before I carry on)
Photo of the pendant.
Oh, and I'm drawing it from the actual pendent, not that photo. Though, it'd have probably been a better idea to do it from a photo, the light sources have been changed a few times already. :/
