#10--pretty rough. I'll clean it up some later. I've decided to keep forging ahead, and posting my initial proofs. This one is 3" X 5".
This is #11. I'm actually really pleased about it. This is my second attempt at having a gray tone between the black and white, and while that is not wholly successful, it does give me some ideas, so I'll be doing more of that as I go along. This one is 4' X 6", and I must say that I like the slightly broader proportions better. The 3" X 5" is pretty darned skinny for faces.
#12 is 3" X 5", and though I have see another face on based off of this face on someone else's 29 Faces in September posting, I still really like it. It's an interesting face. One of my goals for the year is to take all of my own reference photos, rather than taking them from magazines, or the web, or a friend's photos. I don't know how immediately recognizable any of them are, but still.....
#13 is also 3" X 5", and I kindof like this one too. It needs more tweaking, which I will do once I complete this whole series, or at least once I decide it's time to start the tweaking process.
But I'm done for the day. Now I'm making a birthday cake for my son, and then I'm going to spend the afternoon grading papers. Oh boy. But I got my art-making out of my system for the time being (or at least the cutting part of it).
