Thank you for that, it's very helpful !

But I've one question left :
What type of color do you use ? What Swathes ?

Hi, I often make up some swatches for each individual piece of work. Often use colours from the reference photo or alter the colours if, as in this case, want an overall different look. As I progress in the painting, the colours are often picked from the work itself rather than swatches.

Over 2013 when I began really getting into Digital art, I've moved from straight copying a reference photo, to painting it different. I'm still working on getting to the stage where I can do a photo-realistic painting with no reference whatsoever... Now that would be a challenge! ;)

Oh ... All right then.
I didn't think of it that way. It's obviously the best way to match the original.
So, I'll do my best with your advices. Thank you very much !

I hope to improve like that, to make more "fantasist" portrait, to find my own style one day. ((( Fingers crossed ! ))) And at the end, complete the Ultimate Challenge. ^^

Anyway, good luck with all your project. I'll be waiting to see more from you. =D
