I was wondering if I should post the steps it took to paint Onema last night.. then I was encouraged to do so by gasmask.... luckily I save like made while painting and fill up my harddrive with HUGE files, so here's Onema's progression:
First I started out with the sketch
Then I brought it into painter. I created a new layer underneath of the sketch and I set the sketch layer to "gel". I then started painting in the background and the basic colors for Onema.
