I've sent each stage, to show the process (at least, the elementary one I go through!):
The original pic (found by 'rith):
Step 1: Blur out anatomical features like nipples, nails (OK, I ignored those this time), and bellybutton. Blend underpant edges to legs. Tint underwear same shade as skin. Colorwash over skin to diminish hair and blend sharp shadow (and fabric) lines.
Step 2: Color in costumes. Remind self to kill Garth for his very complicated costume. Remind self to kill Dick for that damn mask.
Finished product: Color in background and convert to jpg format. Drop into a coma from exhaustion. :)
