That is so beautiful....I love the way you handled his profile and the lighting and shading is so well done....reminds me of old Renaissance paintings....so painterly but so subtle. Very well done. Awesome job here, love it!

Ohh ok. Well you are fine, I can still understand you very well. :)

My question was just, how do you blend the colors and the skin so well? The portraits you make are so crisp and clean, the skin doesnt look smuggy it looks smooth, but its not perfectly smooth because of maybe the brush you were using the portrait had such a nice texture. Also, i really looveee how you draw his facial features i think my favorite part of the whole picture is his nose, i don't know why but its adorable. 
i guess I am just curious to know what tools do you use and how you determine the colors?

I'm using smudge tool at PS) Texture will depends on what brush will you choose to blend. I'm always give advice to experiment with tools and brushes - it' helpnig to create your own style, find your own way. I use a lot of brushes =)
About colors - well, I don't know. When someone at last workshop asked Tiago Hoisel same question he felt in confusion. And I always do the same. There are color theory, we all know it, but also it's all intuitive. And of course you can take youre colors from what ever you want - photo or maybe oil paintings, or live model. Use any reference you got)

Oooo, I am currently learning more about color theory. So basically, you can know the color theory but mostly its all up to you to figure out the light, shadows, and the colors. 
I do look at a lot of references, I even use your art as a reference because you are so good with using the correct colors in their correct environment. 

For my brushes I use a lot of brushes too XD, but mostly i use a round brush and square brush for my pictures, but they are not as pretty as yours. I would have the correct skin tones and the correct lightening, but my pictures always feel unfinished or not as polished.

Polished art - is not final goal. Look at this - fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/f/201…

Do they looks polished? You must keep vibrant feeling of living in your pic - that's all. Feel yoursef free in it)

Ahh, I want to touch your paint strokes... the rougher bits looks especially nice next to the more polished details in the accessories, too.

If I may ask. How you do you paint the designs on the cloth? Do you paint it separately as a flat design and then superimpose it onto the cloth?

Простите, но вот этот Джагатай к историческому как раз никакого отношения не имеет.))) Это просто совпадение имен.)))

Aha, as soon as I looked at your gallery, I saw this picture, (without looking at the title ohoho) I thought 'Wait.. Is that Batu?'
A lot of the time I can't recognize characters outside of their original drawing style but this definitely does it :D It looks amazzzzing~
