Point Commission for :icontowathestallion45: of her gorgeous stallion Towa

After seeing the `Crickatoo goat submission I decided to try this tutorial out: [link]. This is my first time painting it all in black and white and then layering the colors on top. I must say it was far easier to look at the values because I'm very good with black and white, but I struggle with color. I'm glad I tried this new way out, but I'm not sure which one is faster. I had a ton of layers when I was done with this and I prefer working with fewer layers.

Anyways enjoy and I hope this cheers you up Towa and I had so much fun drawing this for you. Thank you for being patient. :hug:

Thanks Cricket. :hug: Somehow it does seem easier to color first in grayscale and then add colors on top of that.

Thank you. :) I suppose it really helped to start this off in black and white and overlay color on top. This is now one of my favorites.
