Step 9 There are a few important areas that really need to have a much higher level of detail, so add small white ellipses as highlights to the face, hands and shoes. If necessary, add more shadows.

Step 10 Duplicate your stock layer again and move it to the top. Apply a Black & White adjustment layer (Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + Alt + B). Using the Eraser tool (E), roughly remove the background and areas of detail such as the face and hands. Set the layer’s blending mode to Soft Light and its opacity to 25%.

Step 11 The flat blue background was just to make it easy to build up the shapes with the right mix of highlight and shadow. Now we want to make the artwork look more dynamic. Replace the background layer with a light-to-dark brown radial gradient, giving the shapes you’ve created a gold tinge.
