STEP 1. Draw out the base skeleton for the drawing. Be messy. You delete this later.   STEP 2. After lowering your original sketch layer's opacity draw your shuck. Since this is a coloring tutorial, I didn't show how to draw the shuck. Look up different pictures of black shucks and create your own. Also I changed mine's tail. It was to long.   STEP 3. Now clean up your sketch. You can get rid of your base.   STEP 4. Get a dark grey color and color under the sketch. Do NOT use straight black.   STEP 5. Ok. Now the hard part. Get a background.I chose a stormy coastline. Make sure it has a definite light source (in my case lightning). I resized the sketch to better show the background.   STEP 6. Add shades and highlights. Lower the sketch layer. Put highlights on the edges of your shuck. Pieces of hair that stick up cast shadows. Deeper shadows are darker than others.   STEP 7. Go back to your sketch layer and blur it a little (still on low opacity). Now go back to your background. Give your shuck a shadow (unless it doesn't have one). Add any final details and then sign it. You are done! Congratulations.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
