Oh Wow!! What a handsome young man Robyn.  I love his skin color, his hairstyle and those gorgeous brown eyes.  He certainly looks happy with his lot in life.   I guess you have based his colouring on the Maori folk?  Even though the sky is cloudy he is not worried at all. Love this.

Good one, Robyn.
He is away in other skies, surely; One can say it, just looking in his eyes.

  Yes lucky Suzette and they do exist. Here's another guy teamed with his lady...  http://www.pixarra.com/forum.html?p=post%2Fwhen-troubles-arise-9794921  (and you saw my toony guy after his first date). I'm very glad you think he's gorgeous as I thought he was rather "comely" as well, but then I'm biased  lol  Thanks very much!   [smile]  Robyn

Thanks so much Bob and I'm glad you like it.  He was darker than that but at the end I decided that he may not be well seen so I flashed some light across his skin, with the "Process > photo retouch > add" brush.  [smile]  Rob

Thanks so much for the love and the wow Vivienne.  I thought he was comely as well, but never sure until someone else says so. 
No not based on Maori colour or looks.  I drew a black shape for the face and then used various colours to tint it and only brown sufficed.  I have done green, purple, red, bright pink, yellow  etc and normal skin colours over the years, so brown was the one that suited this because of the black underneath. You can see the black edging and that's because I couldn't get the brown to cover the black well enough with out causing blur and smudge.  So it's not an outline before I drew him, but an outline after the event.  I don't like drawing outlines before I colour them, so I just make a big patch of colour and then shape it with the wet finger blender.  You probably didn't ask for all that  lol    [smile]  Robyn

You're so right I was caught up in the eyes of your toony guy that I didn't remember him being a guy. Chuckle... I think the dark underneath the skin tone only helps the shading in this case. [smile]

Yes he is Duarte, in his thoughts, his dreams and in his heart. Not a care in the world and many are like that, I have met them and I've been one often.  Yes it's in the eyes and the tiny smile adds to it as well. Thanks very much for your thoughts.   
Had a hard job with the whites of the eyes though. For some reason the white was too harsh at various levels, even if a tiny bit, so I ended up leaving it as is, but viewing it on a website is different than on my PC, and now they look too yellow.   Never mind...  too late  lol  [smile]  Robyn

  Oh that's funny Suzette. Yes not the typical sort of guy for sure.  The dark only shows around the edges. I covered the black completely with solid dark brown and then I used the "process > photo retouch > multiply blend" for every other datkness on the face and throat etc. For the nose shape, the eyes and the eye lashes, the shading to shape the face, everything. It's my mainstay for all of my faces. I never use an 'ordinary' brush for those. Then the lighting is done with the "Process > photo retouch > add" brush. I wonder if there are others who do the same.  [smile]  Robyn
