Another stab at
What I did was:
1) Scan in and line art.
2) Use another layer for my base colours (I duplicated the line art and used fill tool painting up to the line if I have to)
3) Use another layer for shading (smudged for that blended look) Put this layer in mode: Multiply using properties.
4) Duplicate shaded layer and use properties again to Mode: overlay.
5) Another layer for high lights Duplicated it then put the lower of the two in Mode: colour. (Never thought to blur it, it may glow more
6 Another for the white shinning effects!
And I'm done
Now just for the Background.
Cheap background I know
Anyways I like this....
