Sketches on the train in May VIII

These sketches were done this morning. Somehow The three face lady sketch(above) had a twist to it, can you figure it out?

Don't forget to vote for me this is the link

Hm...a twist? Is it that she seems to be normal and awake (though nodding off) in the first pose, more asleep in the second one, and then jarring back awake in the third? I don't know, that's what it seems like to me :).

Regardless, I was literally struck when I first laid eyes on them. The shadowing on the first and last shots are very good, and your hair for a quick sketch is very, VERY well done - not a strand is misplaced. The first picture is a little odd, though, since she somehow looks younger than in the others; it might be just the perspective, or it might be because her lips look smaller and fuller than in the other two.

I also notice that the hair on the middle one is different; nothing wrong with it, just that the funny little "half-bang" in the front parting is missing. The third is the most standout in this lovely sequence to me; it combines the detailed shadowing of the first picture with the realistice and continuous depiction of age of the second one. Nice work, as always:).

Also, I've recently posted something on beauty and art I thik you might be interesed in; I'd love to know what you think (put me on the critical end, for a change ;p).
