Default May Challenge - caligraphics - Normal

Dunno if I can find the time to finish this months challenge, but if one do not try, one do not get anything done, so here is my entry.

First the image of myself. Its from the day after my daughter was born, so I look pretty darn tired

The nose is characteristic, and my facial features like my skinny look, pretty large ears etc. are all gonna be exagerated. I will add the eyebrows, beard and crooked teeth later.

I am gonna try to give the model a big mouth, since I talk alot , so I am going to try to get the shape right which can be pretty hard. Anyway - I am going to tweak alot to gain my features and exagerate them alot!.. gonna be fun.

This image is where I am so far:
