|FERRO LAD. 2017. Gouache on watercolor block, 9 × 12″.|
For reflective surfaces, it always helps to have good reference. And while Ferro Lad is a bit shinier than most iron, I'm assuming he's nicely polished. The 3D model below is something I sculpted in Sculptris, a free program you should all be using. Many materials (matcaps) come standard with the download, but I created this one by searching for images of shiny spheres online and making the desired adjustments. Such is my life.
