Now, at this stage I'm usually inking my sketches, I like to have a clear (comic book-like) line, but not this time because i`ll paint over the drawing. So now I scan the drawing, then in Photoshop I adjust the Levels and the Threshold to make a thin line and get rid of the unwanted pencil

Now, here is where I start to paint. First I set the layer with the drawing (let's call it L1) to multiply, then I create a new layer (L2) and fill it with a mid grey, then drag the first layer (L1) above the second (L2) like in this picture

Now, I begin painting on the second layer (L2) by blocking down the silhouette and applying the basic values with one of my favourite brushes "Airbrush Pen Opacity Flow". This stage is important, because here you define the values, the depth and part of the mood of the painting, so I try to focus on this one. I found it quite fun to do

If you decide to come up with something new but don't want to do the drawing again, you can add it right here with your tablet, just create a new layer (L3) and place it above all other layers - this way you will paint over the lineart
