Found this incredible artist through someone's tumblr today. Could only find information on him from his website... He studied at University of Melbourne (in Australia woohoo!) He also has his own blog.
His faces almost look like hos Da Vinci made his faces so soft and blended, but then Ruiz adds in all the different layers and colors... I LOVE IT.
|doesn't it look similar? so soft|
|I especially love this one.|
