1) Completed sketch in blue...
4) I am not the best colorist..in fact I don't know how to handle color at all...but I just tried to go with the basic rule of having things stand out from one another. I might actually take a color class to help with applying color techniques.
5) Here I am adding more layers to the picture and starting to paint over the lines. I wasn't sure if the picture looked better with painting over the lines, or if it was better to keep some of the under drawing exposed. I thought about doing a combination, but this is something that I will have to practice with in the future.
7) Adding some flame and lighting effects using some of the brushes available in Painter.
8) Here is the final! Woo hoo! Go Blanka!!!!!
