A great video by Kujo Painting that shows you how light reflects off surfaces to help you with your NMM highlights. This video helped me a ton.
Here’s what Kujo had to say:
If you’ve ever tried your hand at Non Metallic Metals, you’ll know that one of the hardest things to get your head around is working out where the highlights go.
However, it’s secretly easier than you realize, once you know a handful of simple rules, you’ll be able to paint anything.
In this video I break down how to approach NMM (Non Metallic Metal) and go in depth on where to place your highlights and shadows.
First I do a technical breakdown using simple shapes before moving on to practical examples on painted miniatures, including a bloodbowl ogre and Angron from the Forgeworld Warhammer 30k Primarch character series.
I hope it helps you in your quest to master painting Non Metallic Metals (NMM)
