    Hey jaume,

    I concur with my fellow members ,This has to be without a doubt one of the best step by step I have ever seen.
    Although I paint mostly in oils,it is amazing what can be achieved with acrylics.
    What brand of acrylics did you use?
    Keep up the great work and I'm looking forward to your next step.

    Hi Folks.
    Thank you very much for the nice comments.

    Ok,next step.
    Once I've done the skin painting is time to paint some details,eyes and eyebrows,five o'clock shadow(or nine o'lock in this case),and the areas sorrounding the face like hat,hair and shirt collar,that will add the character to our face and may change the contrast once painted.

    I'm not ging to explain any way to paint eyes,because this subject is better explained in other treads here at PF.Anyway,in this figure I had to paint them some times until I was satisfied with the result.
    I outlined in black,then painted with skintone the inside and then painted the blue iris and a light reflection with skintone again.
    I've painted too the basic colour on the hat to see what happened with contrast on the face.

    Five o'clock(or nine )
    I paint the beard shadow mixing the tone that is painted this area,with pure black.
    If I paint beard under the chin,I mix the deepest shadow with black.If I paint it on the upper lip,I mix black with the second light (the colour on that area),and so on.
    I paint it with extremely diluted washes to blend it with the adjacent areas.

    Finally I've painted the hair with black and highlights mixing some English uniform,as well as the eyebrows(don't forget to outline them) and the lower lip(with a deep shadow and adding a touch of light in the center).
    The hat was painted in the same way.
    Eyes were retouched as well as some highlights.
    And,yes,I forgot the ears
