How to Draw CG Pics

We need to do some touch-ups our line art. There are a few small black speckles and uneven lines that we need to Erase so that they look nice. Select the Eraser tool and in the upper-right Eraser Options window, make sure that it is set to Pencil.
Step
    You have to magnify to at least 200% and inspect all your lines. You spent a long time drawing your artwork, there's no sense in skimping on this procedure. This picture has some examples of what we need to Erase.
Step
   Now it's time to color. Click on the Blackground Layer, then click on the Layer Commands Menu. Select New Layer and name the layer Skin. We end up with the Skin Layer sandwiched between our Background and Layer 1 (our black lines).
   Let's rename Layer 1 to Black Lines while we are at it. Select Layer 1, click on the Layer Commands Menu, select Layer Options, then rename the layer Black Lines.
Step

      With the Skin Layer selected, choose a light peach color. Using the Paintbrush or the Pencil, begin to color in all the area where there is going to be skin. You don't have to worry about going outside the lines with your coloring, in fact, I prefer to go outside the lines to be sure that I haven't missed any spots. We will clean off the overspill later on..
Step

      Now we need to select a dark skin tone color. This will be the color of the skin under shadows. I went to the Color Selection screen, and picked a color digonally down and to the right of the intial skin color.
Step
   Before just throwing in any shadow anywhere, you have to establish where your light source is coming from. In this picture, I imagined the light source to be above her head, shining down onto her face. Color in the shadows with this dark color.
