Here is the final image! What I've gathered from this commission greyscale experiment is that I really don't like doing greyscale rendering, especially when it came to skintones. My usual tactic is laying down base colour first, then rendering on top, I haven't done much research into greyscale rendering.
Is it worth pursuing further? What makes rendering in greyscale different from full colour rendering? I'd appreciate any info you have if you'd like to share, as well as critique on the final illustration. Thanks for lookin'!
