Painting is not for sissies, so I FLATTENED the whole thing before starting this stage. My image is One Big Background Layer. Period.
Using the basic colors I found on the last step, I freepainted
all around. I really enjoy this part because I can even change some details of the original drawing with "opaque" paint.
Brush (in normal, screen and softlightmode). From 10% opacity to 100%.
Color adjustment tools. Yes, I adjust over and over and over.
If you look closely, you'll see what kind of textured brush I used.
FOR TEACHING PURPOSES, THIS WILL BE HIGH-RES AND DOWNLOADABLE.
