November 20 work in progress

Black areas in progress:

This is a black and white horse, but it's going to be a full color image. Mostly you'll see the color in his bridle, but if I pull it off there will be some color in the horse as well. This is the same horse I just drew, but I have to sit and think about how to do this sometimes, because sometimes doing color scrimshaw still feels backwards. Whether to work from dark to light or light to dark varies depending on the image. This one needs to go dark to light. So total opposite of how I just drew the very same image. Brain boggle!

What color are his eyes going to be?

Almost black (with a little brown).
