Are you copying an image or creating from scratch?

Good Challenge

A rough Guide:

- The first thing you need to do open up Painter and create a *new* layer. In this layer you need to sketch roughly with light coloured Ink pen the outline of your scene, you will then need to go over your design on another new layer with a nice black ink brush, this will give you a good base, you can also on another new layer add in your details in ink.

- On a new layer under the ink outline and using a water colour brush ( adjust your settings accordingly, you will also need a water colour layer ) you then paint on your backgrounds hues roughly, then on ANOTER layer on top of the background colour and below the ink outlines, you can start to paint in your highlights and lighting casts.

You got a rough idea of where i'm going with this ?

It is key to keep the different elements in their own layer for easy adjustment.
