I go through and add different elements that I feel are fitting for the character, but not all the accessories will end up in the final result. 2. Work dark to light I will normally lay down darker base colors for each additional accessory and then work my values up with lighter values. 3. Dark and Light lines My biggest tip for detailing, is to do a “dark” line to indicate an indentation, and then a “light” line to edge it off in whichever direction the light is coming from to make it pop. 4.
