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)
