I really like the shape of the helm just make is a dark gray or use the shading Qoal put on the infantry helm as a reference. Then it would look nice. :)

I really like the shape. Here I tried to make it a little brighter, and corrected some alpha problems.

I think you could use a tutorial about shading.

Don't be afraid to use very bright (almost pure white) highlights when shading dark objects. It gives the object a shiny, metallic look.

Unfortunately not. Shading is incorrect. We got different light source (south-west).

Well, he does already have a preliminary clue about what he is doing. It's just a matter of redoing it over and over again with more and more techniques to learn with each repetition.

Eventually he won't make mistakes and just does stuff which goes directly into the game without much commentary.

south-west-UP, to be exactly. The back version looks like the light source is below it.
