As Anakin would say, this is where the fun begins! Time to color! For Nute Gunray, I decided to use watercolor and ink, but you can experiment with different watercolors, markers and paper. The smooth surface makes it good for mixed media. You might also want to try illustration board, 32 -
which holds watercolor well. If you all you have is regular drawing paper, don't hesitate to try markers or even colored pencil. Start by blocking in large areas of local color. Lay down light colors first and then build areas of darker color on top by layering the marker strokes and adding different colors. You can make the costume any color you like -- it's up to you since you're the artist!
