Sketch Heads

I started making these for something to do while waiting for...paint to dry, sculpey to cure etc. The only restrictions I made were that each one was to take no more than 10min to make. The painting is a later addition as I decided I couldn't see enough detail on them...

Here are the first few I made unpainted:

...and here they are painted up:

....and here are the next three:

...interesting to see in just these few how much they've improved from the first batch. I must keep these going, I might try using some paperclay on the next lot.
