Eyes, Hair, and Mouth Two Chicks 29Faces Day 6

It's Day 6 of the 29Faces link party and here are two more works:

She's drawn with a No.2 pencil.  I'm trying to figure out her life story.  Is she vain, regal, impatient, overworked? Or, is she a diva, abused, or left on the sideline?  Maybe her bun is too tight and she simply has a headache.

I was practicing different hair textures and a fuller mouth. Her eyes are purposely uneven, due to a natural fact of her birth.

This is a watercolor on a torn out page from a 100 plus year old book.  The book was crumbling, so I salvaged a few pages, blank and with text to use to practice drawing.

With the duck I'm trying to work the white spots in the eyes to see where they should go; and deciding if the placement will give different expressiveness.

Making eyelids, as on the pencil sketch above, is another experiment.  Having uneven eyes is not common, but not unusual and the above woman uses her uneven eyes to show even more disdain and contemplation.

Are you experimenting with the 29Faces?

Your comment about her bun left me smiling! I think she looks like someone put ketchup on her filet mignon! Love the little ducky, too!

Love the bun! I know several people with uneven eyes. I don't think it is all that uncommon.

Most people do have uneven eyes, uneven noses, ears, etc.; if it were perfect I would look like a computer drawing! Uneven equals character!

Gloria, you made me laugh! Maybe her bun is too tight! LOL! To me, she almost looks like an African queen and she is in deep thought! I love the duck! Too cute! You are doing really well on this challenge!
