I set myself a challenge one night to fill up my page with faces from the O magazine next to me. The first ones I did looked forced and had way too much detail. I've been studying up on one of my favorite illustrators of all time, Trina Schart Hyman (go look her up at the library, you will fall in love too) and noticed that though her pictures are detailed, she does much of it with color and not with lines (at least not in her faces). I finished the page and went back and reworked the heads I didn't like and simplified the heck out of them. Next step: watercolour!
