The above image is my initial drawing -- just a simple black outline on one layer in Photoshop, and a 50% gray background on another layer.

This image is my "safe base" where I used the pen tool to fill in my outline and show Photoshop exactly where I want to add color.

The above image is my flat color layer. I used a pale brown, a light blue, and a dark brown as my foundation colors.

I added shadows to my base colors. I used a soft brush with lower opacity and flow (see the Glossary if you don't know what those terms mean) to add the shadows.

I added highlights using a pale yellow color, a soft brush for the softer ("diffuse") light, and then a harder brush for the backlighting ("rim light").

I used a soft round brush with low opacity and flow to create a basic yellow background wash. 

All done! What do you think?
