For those following up on my debatable progress, here is where I'm at. Still working on it. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/frown.gif
If I finish this one I'm gonna have to do the real thing as this one is gonna have a ton of paint on it. Teehee!

Here goes!
For those who don't know this is from this earlier thread.

WELL! I am impressed by the whole change of emotion in it! I think you must be a little happier with your drawing and the chin looks like a chin! (I tend to do BIG chins...short folks, you know?!) but since he is shorter than you, it looks better from this viewpoint.
NOW the challenge:
Make the shapes of the CHEEKS...JUST the shapes. Not cheeks, highlights so the show ONLY where the light parts are.
If you do nothing with the rest of the face, you will see how the SHAPES...SHAPES of the lights make the face have more character.
did I say SHAPES?
they have edges, some strong some blended but the thing about shapes is they have integrity. They are all ONE thing...
I am at a loss for words....
TRY to keep all of your edges hard, like the posterizer and see if it doesn't do the opposite of what you think. See if it doesn't actually make it ROUNDer.
If you have too much paint, you may end up doing a bas relief so that is ok too!
