Finished up the red cloth on Micon with highlights, and started on the black bits - the wrap on his arm, the fringe, the padding on his lower legs. I like the black, but it's definitely giving him a grim look. Which is fine - he's a gladiator, after all. Killing for sport is not exactly a happy fun profession.
The black will get highlights next time, which will be - you guessed it. Same blue as I used in the shadows on his skin and on the red.
