Wow this is so cool! But just out of curiosity, why do you start with the grey shading? Wouldnt it be quicker just to start with the colour? Excuse my ignorance, just wondering.

I generally do different approaches. With this specific approach to greyscale it's easier to quickly put down values and light in greyscale, define the overall composition first and make sure that's solid, before applying further details and colours.
This approach is actually a common one throughout art history as well. Starting with a monotone 'underpainting', then painting over that. (Although I did apply some digital techniques in here, with layering hehe)

Hope that answers your question! But feel free to ask more.

You start with grayscale then work in the color? That's an interesting way to do it
