Getting better, see? Having a print-out rather than referring to the computer screen helped a LOT. I'll post more later...probably tonight.

My major main problem right now seems to be in making the actual shape of the egg accurate. I tend to want to make it more narrow at the "pointed" end than it actually is. I think I'll do some more tracing.

I'm pretty happy with these two. The angle on all the features is right, and that's the tricky part. Craig D's tip about looking at negative spaces has REALLY helped, particularly in figuring out the distance and shape between the eyes and the placement of the upper lip.

I forgot to write "Egghead Down right- Attempt #1" on this picture, but that's what it is. I've noted the differences that I saw on it, but there's also just something...wrong about it. We'll see how it goes on later drafts.

Grrr. The eggheads are eluding me. I'm getting slowly, slowly better, but not enough to post them yet. I'll post what I've got tomorrow night whether or not it still sucks. In the meantime, here's a little caricature doodle of our fair President. I dunno. I was bored. Caricature is still really new for me.
