I figured I could show how I do som eof my work. one is shown in 'tassandra' where I use layering to keep colors distinct. This is plain adding in colors using a paintbrush at 30-70% opacity, pencil and a good amount of the smudgeing tool. I lose more of the details this way, but the texture and feel of some of the materials are easier to show. compare this with the barely touched B/W image and I hope some of you people see something.
