step 1) open a clipping group above the layer you colored on and apply the shading, but remember you need to add a sunspot (is what I call it) in this pose the 'sun' is off to the right of the pose (it can be anywhere but under)

step 2) overlay that clipping layer

step 3) add another clipping group over the shading and apply base highlights where the 'sun' hits

Step 4) overlay and adjust colors/brightness **if** needed

Step 5) add fine highlights on another clipping group and overlay
