Faces, thirteen fourteen fifteen

29 Faces 2013Catching up!

Well, getting closer anyway.

At least, I’m up to #21 here at home – give me time, and I’ll get them all added here 😉

So, on with the show.

Face number thirteen, a hairy girl again! I named her “Just Blossom“.

I based this girlie on the same sketch as the earlier hairy girl to get her hair how I wanted it.

I definitely like their large foreheads, which explains why I’ve had such a hard time adding hair.
-I kept wanting to give them fringes, and it just doesn’t look right.

For faces fourteen and fifteen, I did some doodling on paper for a change.

The girlie doesn’t really grab me. Not sure whether it’s her lips or just the shape of her head, but she just doesn’t jump out at me and shout “Wow!”

I’m quite taken with Teddy, though. I think I’m going to have to paint him before too long, because I keep on looking at him and smiling!

Hope you’re enjoying the 29 Faces Challenge as much as I am, and seeing your faces improve day by day!

    • I’m hoping to finish, Melanie!

      Unfortunately I’ve been pretty tired this week with my CFS & then my 9yo son was home sick on Thurs & Fri, and I have my first (sort-of) commissioned painting to finish – so no rest for the wicked!

      I’ll try and make it over to your blog somewhere in there to see how you’re doing with your 100 faces (wow!) 😀
