A little update on where I am up to. Added some base colours via hard light layer. I prefer using this for base colours over a colour layer and I keep the black and white values pretty low in contrast because these next few steps will shoot them up anyway and you dont want to overkill it. Used a multiply layer and some cool colours to punch out more shadows and did the reverse for the highlights, using hot colours in an overlay layer to pick out lighter areas. A full tutorial will come after the painting is completed.
Marvel Vs Capcom 3 is out tomorrow... updates might suffer :P
