I've done a lot more work since yesterday's post, and here it is!
First, the inks, which I did by hand, then tweaked and cleaned up in my clunky old version (but still totally practical) of Paint Shop Pro (where I can use a hard edge on the paintbrush tool -- something which is bafflingly impossible in Photoshop).
And then, flat colour!
Next up, I add shading and highlights, which is the best stage of all, as it gives the work some life and some polish. And then I decide whether or not I feel up to adding any kind of background. We shall seeeeeee...
