This isn't a real tutorial because I'm not a professional artist, it's just to show how I proceed. So if you have any ideas about how I could progress, it would be very helpful .
And please excuse my English too, it isn't my native language (that's the first time I type such a long text in English o_o).

Thanks for the help!! Very useful.
Quick question: About the water colour pencils, does it HAVE to be water colour? Or could you use normal color pencils too?
You can use any kind of pencils.
Though the water colours ones can be useful to "blur" some of the lines.
So do you wet the paper or the colors itself...or both? i'm confused :/
In fact I do both, sorry if it was confusing .
Wetting the paper allows you to apply the watercolour in an homogeneous way, while wetting the colors allows you to adjust its tone (the more water you add, the lighter it will be) .
But i was wondering...did you tape your piece onto a board or something?
I didn't have to tape the paper because its edges were already glued to the block. It's really convenient to prevent the paper from being distorted by the water.
if u pardon me, may i ask what colors should use for skin?
For the skin, I use a mix of red+yellow (=orange) and use a lot of water so that it remains light. For tanned skin I add some burnt umber and a touch of black.
