The sword has a glow to it so the edges of the sword around the light source I’ve highlighted brightly as a result. You’ll also notice at the tip of the sword I have darker highlights, that’s what I started off with. Among those darker highlights at the tip are brighter ones from the normal light source, not the glow.
My question is this, should I make those darker highlights near the tip lighter or does that look good as is? Should I do all my highlights that lighter color you see and then go white for extreme highlights where needed (the current light color is a blue gray)? Something in between?
Any and all advice is appreciated.
