Sakura - Kobato

Black and white

Hi! This is my first time posting here after a long while of lurking and learning. Everyone here is really talented!

A friend of mine asked me for some icons of a favourite character, but I mostly have black and white manga pictures to work with. I have a few cropped already that I'd love to use as bases, but I'm stuck wondering what to do with them. My tablet isn't really working, besides I'm not very good at colouring at all. I'm wondering if anyone could give me a few tips on how to bump up a black-and-white manga picture to be something neat as an icon?

Thanks in advance!!
