Awesome. Are you painting the colour from your value paint using an overlay layer? Or are you just painting over the values?

Yes, I mainly try to use an Overlay layer to add the colours. Usually after going over the flattened image with a Colour balance
Or if it doesn't seem to work fully or properly I might add in a color layer or change the values manually (or whatever works)

Neat. It seems like a bit more hassle than just plopping on some colour in, though, or maybe I just haven't figured things out yet. Thanks.

Yea. It's a bit more steps than brushing with a colour (on normal layer) right away.
When adding colour, I used to do it with just a color layer. But with the overlay layer you can fine tune the values as well
In the end I guess I'm just playing around a lot with different things to see what works and not.

It's very dramatic. I also like the pose, it makes me think of a bird posturing toward a rival. I think this is a wonderful composition which holds your style but still gives homage to the FIM style.

The use of black is a bold and interesting choice. It enhances the color and makes it stand out. Very well done!

Thanks! Using so much darkness certainly helps to make the contrast the main focus and it's good fun to play around with :D
