    Shiny pendant. (Help?)

    Hi. ^^;

    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)

    Drawing here.

    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. :/

    Thats a good start What would make a world of difference is more contrast, you'll notice a lot of it in shiny objects. Dont be afraid to get a darker pencil/press down really hard! And for the lighter areas, it can help to erase over those areas to make them seem brighter.

    Hope that helps
