Design and Color Tones

Adding a blue layer colorized everything and I also painted over the existing lines with color (Fig.06).

I defined more of the details and colors, as well as playing with the contrast. I developed the character, adding more shapes and peculiarities, and also added some hints to the background to add context to the scene and create a sense of depth (Fig.07).

Next I made some heavy color corrections, getting rid of the blacks and converting them to dark blues. I also defined the ground against to create further depth and context for the character. I kept working on the face design to make it more undead-like (Fig.08).

Playing with Lighting while Designing

At this point I was playing with the mood and some lights to make everything more interesting. You can download the PSD from the link earlier on in this article to see what changes I made and how I made them (Fig.09).

Here's a close-up of the face. Because the image was quite big, the strokes were quite loose (Fig.10).
