Nice use of gradients.

Gold reflective certainly is a challenging look to get well.

Wonder if anyone has ever seen a tutorial on how to paint on gold? How to get the colors right, how to get the blends, how to create radiuses - and especially how to figure out where to put the shadows and highlights.

I have seen some traditional true airbrush work that looked pretty convincing (the kind with real air) - but most of the stuff I see using Photoshop is really fairly poor quality - because the science and art of gold reflections is so specialized I think.

Ive seen some comments on pseudo-gold and brushed gold - but I have never seen a description of how to make polished gold look convincing!

What are the factors for success. I can understand a tent for shooting - but what about the retouching aspects of polished reflective gold? Anyone seen a tutorial on creating or retouching convincing polished gold?
