Daily Sketch 8: Grimace

Original Image.

Analysis: This is NOT a 15 minute sketch...more like a 45 minute sketch. Overall, the face is at least twice the size of all the other faces, so more area to shade. I don't like the pout, and I did a really bad job on the eyes. They're not even close to the same size. I always seem to have more trouble with the half closed eyes, because they're deceptively long. I am really happy with the shading on the neck, because it lays in a solid area of grays that somehow has its own unintentional shading, and it was really fast. It also quickly distinguises between areas of light and shadow. I need to do this more initially before getting to form-following shading.
