Well done Xia for this one....As you always say the value makes the image wonderful! You should make more video tutorials of making colored illustrations rather than the grayscale or monochromatic ones.

Thanks and keep it up

Luca>> There are approximately 250 videos on this site...and plenty of color ones. Feel free to look around :) Value (gray-scale) is the foundation, without it or knowing it, it doesn't matter what color it is...if your value is wrong, it will turn out wrong.
Sargent and other master artists alike emphasis on value then color.
Grey-scale painting (monochromatic or acmromatic) will help you or us achieve our goal.
-my two cents
