  1. 20 Hour Experiment Day 14

    I knew going in this was going to be rough, but I figure i'm almost halfway through this experiments and I'd better start trying to do faces, since that's a big part of what I want to be able to draw. Not only is a face in my target picture, but I'd like to be able to draw character concepts.
