PPF #8 v.2: 29 Faces

I will be joining Ayala Art at 29 FACES this month.

We have 31 days to make 29 faces. That means 2 extra days of room to wiggle, which I lost by starting too late! *sigh*

Guidelines:
* It's all about a face! Any medium, size, techniques and forms are welcome.
   --It is OK to post an unfinished work too! Don't stress if you can't finish the  whole thing the same day.
* Your posts have to include the label/tag 29 Faces (make sure you type it in every post for this challenge!)
** Write an introductory post in your blog, tell people what it is etc AND use the tag/label. THEN click on that label, (it will take you to another blog page) then you copy the URL from your browser and paste it here in the Linky
Examplehttp://yourNameHere.blogspot.com/search/label/29faces  
The link you post will take the readers to ALL your individual challenge's posts. This way we only post one link, and have all our 29 postings showing!. (^._.^)  

Face #1 (May 2nd): Just faffing around playing with eyes. Tatiana (12yo dd) is very much into manga stories like Naruto and is our resident expert in eyes. She taught me the worried look which might be quite effective if practised.
 
Face #2 (May 2nd): now this is more my style. 
Face #2 colouring (May 3rd): my working table. I looked for an ad in the same position to understand the light.


 I used oil pastels for a first version, which I didn´t like so I went over it with watercolour pencils.

Final touches with watercolour pink which I also used for the background.
More work on the background next week.
I will be posting that and more faces on Friday for Paint Party Friday. You can visit other artists working different mediums and styles there. :)

Oh I heard of that challenge- good for you taking it on! It will be neat to see all 29 in the end- perhaps you could do a collage photo when you are done!

Faces are so fun and complicated at the same time, I like your second one a lot!
