    Great job Oleg !
    You might pay some attention to the hairline of the little guy.
    It looks so ....solid ?

    Nice work Oleg (y)

    I'm not a painter so I can offer no suggestion on the hairline, but there needs to be a good article on just airlines and eyebrows alone!

    Easiest way to do it is work a lighter wash from the edge of the skin tone into the hair line so it matches more naturally, a progression that will tone down the dark hair, like a glaze. :D

    The purple on the headpiece is stunning
    For the hairline, you can stipple the hair color along the edge of the hairline so that its a bit uneven, or use an older brush with a rougher edge and pull the paint back from the hairline, front to back. this will leave an uneven edge. Or you can use the flesh color to blend over top of the hairline a bit to make it less harsh. This is working with oils. I'm no good with acrylics.

    Oleg, a way around hairlines, if that is a little problem for you right now (it won't be after a while with more figures under your belt), is to simply give the child a little longer hair....maybe a bit curly and you can use the individual curls to break up the hairline. It will look natural, and even perhaps more endearing on this subject matter.Plus each curl can be highlighted to bring out your painting skills...
    Well done...keep going. Terrific!!
