Lakota warrior 'Kills First' on Huion tablet

After creating trial cartoons and impressionistic portraits on the Huion 610 Pro Drawing Tablet I thought I'd try a realistic color portrait. Reference image was a small B&W photograph of Lakota warrior 'Kills First' (...) taken by Gertrude Kasebier. The image I am working on is large enough to make giclee prints. Below you see the sequence of this portrait; the newest phase on top. At this point I am making the drawing after which I will apply detailed textures. I am thinking of making a photo-realistic version and a more impressionistic version for print. I may touch up the prints with an analog airbrush afterwards.
