Finishing the torso
At this stage I polish up his torso, as well as the waist straps and clasp. For a more realistic look, I made his abdominal muscles more defined without being over-developed. I also add texture and stitches to the straps. During this step I also add the shadows created by his arm and scarf, and fix whatever shadows may have been out off. This is done using an Overlay layer and black/white/grey colours. I paint these on the Overlay layer to try and save myself some time.
