Hi Tantoni, great description of your method, clear and easy to follow. Your image has been generally well done, I like the jersey particularly. There are just a couple of minor areas for improvement.
Firstly the girl's face has a slightly orange tone to it and is possibly a little dark, and secondly the tone of the vegetation varies from left to right.

Thank you GR. Because I usually see my images printed on newsprint I often feel I need to overdue my adjustments in the fleshtones. I find that this mixure of M Y looks good on newsprint. Maybe minis some more yellow in the highlights. As far as the tone of the vegetation, I didn't even notice until you said something. But now I see it clearly in the thumbnail image.
Thank you :-)
