Flats - the first part of coloring. And where I ended up drawing in all the backgrounds - pretty crucial!

I colored this on my Cintiq 13 HD and used Photoshop after I scanned the original line art.

Starting to convert the lineart to color and refining the rendering.
I also used a Custom Brush to add a subtle texture to everything.
