Healthy colors. ;P

That's one hellish palette, but it was worth it. From sketches from life.

See refs and progress and reptiles on the forum thread. Thanks for the helpitude!

I think the dithering in the hair is perfect, very good portrait in my opinion!

Thanks, very good point! I'll update that (and some other stuff) after the vote.

You have great skills in maximising the palette, seeing your whole workflow and this progress was a treat :).

The final Bg here is good too, but there is one thing about the bottom left of the face that makes it look a tad skewed, where the cheek meets the chin. Covering up the darkest shadow seems to rectify it so something less crude but like this would do it?

 Very good use of the colors mate ^^

This pallete from Week Challenge is a bit hard to use ^^
