Since I saved a lot of the layers while working on this I thought I might as well put it up.
Fairly straightforward process, really - the first colour pass involved two layers set to multiply, just painted over the top of the first one, and after that it's just a matter of actually painting.
The painting is all done with a combination of these three brushes, mostly the second splodgy one, which is nice for soft smooth blending while keeping a sort of 'painterly' look at the same time.
The final piece is 6000px wide, and the whole thing probably took 8 or 9 hours, in PS CS4.

The final is up here -

haha; I'm not sure if refined is quite what I'd call it yet, I still play around and try different things all the time, but thanks!

You have made me the happiest girl alive by posting this. Your Monika piece is my PC background and I stare at it every day wondering how you do it! ...I still have no idea, (I think you use dark magic to be honest...) but this is good enough for me!!!! So beautiful :)
