I believe that's one of the player character xenomorphs from one of the AVP games

How did you go about highlighting the black? Was it minimal grey highlights / drybrushing?

the black is as followed

vallejo german grey base coat over a grey primer (black primer is fine)
50/50 german grey + vallejo neutral grey
50/50 neutral grey + vallejo sky grey

thats all that was used. just use less on brush each time.
