Wonderful! I'm lining up another attempt at oils soon. Can you talk about your colors for the skin tone and any advice or tips you might have? I just picked up a premix flesh tone so that should make life easier. There's some really nice shading and detail here, awesome!

excellent! its the best way to really learn some solid skills.
I use a palette with 25-30 colors, and there is no "formula" for skin tone. But there is a lot of theory(i've studied at an figure drawing/painting atelier where I learned classical technique). What I would suggest is just paying attention to complimentary relationships. Like shadows will always be the opposite of the lights. For example cool shadows, will have warm lights. Give it a try, I can give you better tips if I see what you can do. just dont be afraid, cause that will hold you back.
Thanks for the kind words man, and good luck with oils. Just drop me a line if you need some tips.
