Drawing Faces

For me drawing does not come easily.  I know the ability is there because I can feel it inside. However, I don't do it often enough and have to warm up.  My brother Russ, a professional artist, can draw anything, in detail, quite easily and it looks beautiful.  But he does it for a living (LucasFilm), so there you are.  Meanwhile, it took me five or six hours and numerous starts/stops just to practice on fabric scraps.  It was 9:30p by the time I got going, and now it's time to sleep.  Here is what I've done so far.  So far, so good.  Not perfect, but I'm satisfied.  My lifelike representations are meant to be as flawed as we are.
