Well, the skin looks like wood, i don't know if you wanted this or not, it looks good anyway and its for a first pic with a wacom for sure a brilliant start...
you should use it more, a wacom is a powerfull weapon
I really like your Manip-Skills and just want to say that you shouldn't stop with the manipulations !!
great airbrushing n05. damn fine for a first attempt with a wacom. it really reminds me of a few van gogh self portraits. i love the feeling and texture of wood on this. top notch stuff n05. keep it up we need more hand drawn stuff, heh. that coming from me...i like hand drawn stuff.
