Monday Update! Just got back from celebrating my Mom's birthday and I wanted to makeup for lost time. I'd like to say working on this face was a breeze, but I still have much to learn about rendering stylized faces.
Also I'm in the summer mood! Doing doodles in PaintTool Sai, their pen tool + lineart layers are pretty cool, I've been reading some tuts and I might try pushing this to finish in a cel shaded, linear fashion. I enjoy painting but I'd like to try an alternative style, especially if it's faster.
