Firstly I pencilled the drawing on paper ( unfortunately I don't have the drawing anymore, as I've already inked it. ) After inking it I scanned it in as a greyscale picture 300 dpi.

I opened it in Photoshop for the finishing. I then proceeded to put in the darkest shadows and color on his pants on separate layers in multiply mode As seen on Daggermaster.

After that I put in the skin tone and used the burn and the dodge tool for depth ( highlight and shadow ).

Using the same technique I painted some blood on him and some reflection, which I made simply by painting with the airbrush ( 50% ) lightly over the areas I wanted to be reflected. For the sparks I used one of the built-in brushes provided with Photoshop.

Finally I made a gradient of dark blue to white and put it in the background. That's it!
