I was looking form something relatively easy to copy to enhance my coloring skills... but it's harder than expected :p

You seem to be making great progress.
I also like your AR screen shot. Would make a great advertisement the way you organized and framed it. :):):)

Thank you Matthew, Bumble, Byron, Mike, Hanzz, Ray!

I think that my version is a bit more aged than the reference image... wondering how to make it younger... let's see :)

Thank you een...

Now started bleding some colors... then i'll need to restore some stroke details to give more "paint" appeal (this one is from my Windows 7 machine).

My question is: is it better to blend colors then paint over them to give some stroke effects, or paint the blend with different colors? In the latter case... how do you usually approach?

Further progressing... I found handy to block colors with oil brush, then smooth with the wet brush sticker preset.

I must manage to make him more rough... it starts being too much femine, uhm...

Your coloring skills are great by what I see in your steps. Lots to learn from. :)

Thank you Pai, you are always so kind...

I was not much convinced by the feminine look it started to get... Moved mouth higer and reworked eyes... hope better now.

At last, the final touches...

Reworked a bit the face, then skin tones with a Tones layer, finally added a impasto layer under the drawing layer and painted on it with white oil colors just to give a slight "stroke" effect.

What do you think of final result?

Well, think I had enough of Superman... :o
