02 Finished sketch

03 Bring to Photoshop
Scanned image in Photoshop, slightly cleaned up.
04 Background
Adding the paper texture background and first highlights and shadows. The sketch lines are 50% opacity.
05 Coloring in Painter Essentials
I like to use digital water color brushes which permit to blend colors and build up color depth.
05 Adding more detail
06 Final colored sketch
07 Final touch
Adding darker background for more contrast; signing and dating it, and Basta!
