how do you do that metal shading
If I'm remembering properly, I shaded it using several shades of the base colour (so darker and darker greys on the grey head for example). Then I used the photoshop cutout filter on it to provide that rusty/mottled/warbly edges between shades. Then to finish it off I went back over it with the burn and dodge brushes.
Groovy. I dig.
That's pretty cool. ^^
