Well, I haven’t studied metal too much, but I do have a few robot characters, so I hope this’ll help!

First I color the lines, so each piece sort of sticks out, but also blends together as whole objects.

Then I play with the lighting a lot. Typically, metal’s reflective, so showing how the metal interacts with the environment’s lighting is a good way of giving it properties. 

That’s essentially all I do for my robots, though I know there’s a lot more I could study and improve on, especially with metal. Hope that helps!
