I then continue to paint the arms and neck. I also identified the parts of the hair that needed work and strengthened them by adding to the effect of light and shadow (Fig.12).

The hair was continuously developed and at this point I made new layers to make adjustments as I didn't want to adjust what I had. I also added eyelashes here (Fig.13 - 14).

In this final step I adjusted the colors. You will also notice that birds were added. I also went back into a few layers to tweak things a little (Fig.15).

I've always wondered how some artists manage to not come with muddy colors when they first paint in black and white and then overlay color.. I'm gonna try painting like this, for IMO it's a good way of learning about light and shadow prior to learning how to use color - and proper shadowing is of crucial importance in painting!

@Konstantin Nikkari: Well, how come you said that the hair look bad in the finished picture? You are absolutely blind, according to me. It is one of the best hair I've ever seen! It's beyond amazing! And that's why I fell in love with Yuehui Tang's work.

Nice guide! Thank you for this. Hair seems to be the biggest problem for CG artists. And as here in finished picture they look bad. They are over detailed. Human hear just don't look like that! I think fig. 08-09 had the best looking hear and could have been left like that.
