This is definitely the most clear greyscale tutorial I have ever seen. Kudos to you!
I have always failed with grey greyscales, but never thought of a brown greyscale! I have always coloured my horses one by one which is slow and tedious, specially if you need to make multiple of them.
This will revive my desire to colour horses again, so I must dust off my tablet. Thank you so much! Worship

I have been trying to figure out how artists did this technique for so long and your tutorial was simple, understand and worked really well.  Here is what I made using it: TAS Tasoula #1219 by WeavingMagic

This will be SO helpful! I only have a touchpad mouse on my laptop (my USB mouse crapped out a while ago) and while it's fun to shade them in, it takes forever. >.< I'll try using this; if it works out well, I'll post it and link to your tutorial :D

This is so helpful. Thank you SO SO much! :wow: The way you took the time to show how layering works really makes this an exceptional tutorial for any level user. :w00t:

I just have one question that this tutorial didn't answer... how do you blend so seemlessly and get that super-shine? I understand this is a tutorial is aimed at creating greyscales (brownscales in your case ;P) and not on shading, but if you ever decide to dabble on a tutorial again, that is one I would definitely be interested in seeing. :la: I looked on both of your accounts and could not find a tutorial on blending/shading. :noes:

But a super thanks to you for this! I think I'm going to give it a shot on my next pic! :eager: Maybe I wont get so frustrated.

Well, maybe I'll do one once, but I must confess that I'm reaaally lazy to do such a big tutorial xD You can already see that I was lazy to change my software to write the explainations here -such a few explainations btw- xDD
But if I find the motivation to do such a big one, i'll do it ^^

Please do! It would be so helpful <3 Even just a simple explanation, but with step-by-step and how you layer would be perfect :3

Wow this actually looks like a great way of greyscaling that spares you the pains and lost nerves of finding a good way to merge actually grey greyscales with a flatcolour layer in the right way which makes it look like the horse you want.
AWESOMe I'm definitely trying this.:la:
Thanks so much for sharing.:heart:
