    cut out filter.....

    yeah we all love the cutout filter, but try to utilize it more purposefully or avoid it completely.
    it may be better to manually attempt to achieve the same look of a cutout filter without actually using it.
    i've used everyfilter in the book at one point or another, and it's always left me dissatisfied in the long run.

    with the type of figures you draw, "realistic" color rendering may end up being a bad idea. you can achieve a better harmony in composition through texture if your coloring reflects the quality of your linework.

    if you want 'reality', start with the figure and the anatomy, a strong foundation of proportions and accuracy in body structure is the first step in depicting a representation of 'reality'

    but that aside, if you want to sculpt a more believable form, spend a great deal of time establishing form through value. a wide gradient of tints and shades will help render shape. pay attenton to brushwork and how it relates to texture (texture of cloth, skin, hair, background, etc.). use a diverse palette of colors, as 'reality' is rarely in simple color schemes. find the hidden colors of certain hues (the blues and greens in skin tones), treat the digital image as a painting, eliciting the accuracy of color and representing it faithfully. taking liberties, generalizing, or other shortcuts will hinder your progression and ability to transcribe into a beleivable form.

    reality can be a lot of work, but well worth the effort.
    goodluck

    i think you should jus render the skin areas. try playing with the opacity of the brush, for rendering.
    remember hard and soft edges.
    i think everywhere else you should keep it. looks good!
