So this is my 5th modle ever and I thought I would attempt to do some highlighting. This is a Deathwing termie for my friend that plays an all terminator army. I would like suggestions on how I can improve so C and C please.

More severe highlights, paint the cabling + wires, touch up the search light, paint the chainfists teeth....really just minor details, but it will bring the model together a lot better.

As for your attempt at highlighting, I say its a great start, you just have to keep going brighter imo. Then again, I run a lot of Slaanesh so don't take my word for it....

Great job!

For your 5th model, it's not bad at all. I agree with Shaper, the highlight needs to be brighter. I'm guessing the color that you dry brushed the model with is the same color you tried to use for a highlight? Go one step brighter when you do highlighting, makes it stand out more and isn't too bold.

Thank you both for your Suggestions. I have gone back to the model and used brighter highlights and put in a bit more detail

Much better color for highlighting. Now you just need some more practice and you'll be doing well.
