Thank you guys!

As a matter of fact, in the jim carrey illustration I used both oils, acrylics, pencils ánd gouache. Don't ask why or how, I just grasped anything I could use in the process.
As you can see I stuck with reds, ochres, puples and yellows in the background.
In the portrait I actually used as much colors as possible, focussing mainly on their tonal values, so that shapes would come out well.
In the end somehow a more or less flesh tone appeared.

A while ago I made a rough setup, and then messed it up by going over it with oils. I put the whole illustration away for a year, and when I recently dug up som old stuff for an upcoming exhibition, I found it quite a challenge to see if I could give it life again.
