Base colors are good for defining foreground from background, or to get a rough idea of what color an artist is looking for, or to see where the shading would go.  They have a lot more uses than what I said, but really, base colors are the best thing in art since a canvas XD

This is really great..and yeah I never really have understood the reason for the third step either. Could someone explain?

Im pretty sure its just to make the coloring WAY easier, cause you can just drop a "clipping mask" above the layer with the base on it and set the "blending mode"(button next to opacity on layers window) to color and you can color in your stuff without worrying about staying in the lines. it DOES cause a couple complications with the colors though. for a more detailed explanation youtube search "Understanding Colour and Value" and look for the one by Sycra.
On another note, i would also like to add that ive never really used this method so it would be smart to just check the facts and look into this a bit more if your interested.
And on a completely other note, awesome paintingI am a dummy!

What do you do in the 3rd step?
I can guess the 1st is hand drawing, the 2nd drawing the lines in photoshop (maybe?) and 4th you start placing the colors but 3rd, I do not see ...

Thanks a lot in advance ;)
