I thought I'd post this here since I'm going to practice this a little bit later, after I finish my core studies.
I can't figure out how to paint crystals and gems and things like that. Especially if they have any color. I know, "look at reference" I have, but I still can't figure out why the light interacts the way it does... and just copying a photo isn't going to help me.
What I have here, looks like cheap plastic. And the colors are definitely pulled out of my ass... I can't even remember why I picked them.
Any kind of help would be swell,
