i'm reeeally happy with how the muscles came out in this. Brought back memories of doing and redoing and reredodoing muscle shading on pictures years back. Also for any artists watching me, protip. Use colors for hair highlights rather than white. I used a candy green for the highlight with a middle green as the base color. It really helps the color of the hair pop out. Use white only if there's a lot of exposure (say from a very bright and nearby light source) or if the hair is a very desaturated color or entirely colorless anyways.
Maybe I should do a chart as an example because I really love this technique. I think it's brought something wonderful to my work and i want everybody to have this tool available to them <:D
