Glaze is a protective transparent or semitransparent layer that adds shine and maybe hints of subtle color, at least in traditional painting... closest thing in digital painting is probably just semitransparent layers.... which don't add shine or function as a protective coating... So it's kinda more like a using a wash in watercolors.  Hope that helps.

The most important and most difficult to draw the people to capture their character and give a feeling to the image. You have managed to do both very well.
