Here are the final steps. I should have been finished this a week ago but haven't been in the right mood.
So this step was painted about a week ago, I roughed in the flesh tones and some of the darks.
Then I contrasted the darks with some bright highlights. I just work back and forth until it looks right to me.
Then it sat for about a week. Today I finally felt patient enough to complete the last bit of detail work. It only took a couple hours, I kinda feel bad for putting it off so long.
I'm pretty happy with the way this piece turned out. I find my art is quite different when I work directly from reference.
