20. Side Eye Guy
21.  Pout

26. Rock Fan

My last four faces were done with ball point pens and/or gel pens. I love drawing and painting with ball point pens but doing fair flesh tones with them maybe impossible. The "Rock Fan" has an extremely pink complexion. I felt it needed blending which I accomplished by using a flesh colored oil pastel.

A great challenge which kept me working and practicing my faces.  I do wish I had tried more masculine faces though.  They are the real challenge.
