I love this work. At first I had favored this to the enhanced version thinking the extra effects took away from it a bit, until I realized it wasnt just the effects but you upgraded her armor too. Like a badass level up. Awesome work and I faved both of them for it
That leads to my second question related to this, your tutorial says your paint over what you have again on a normal layer. I'm a little confused by that method cause wouldn't that cover your grayscale under painting and cover the values you create from the grayscale? I'm really curious cause I've tried painting in grayscale and adding color to it but I end up with a muddy color palette.
