    Uh, cool, very cool. The third one has more of a photographic quality (I mean in the "accurate" handling of the form), which for me is bringing it down. I suspect the other two were done from reference, or by looking in a mirror maybe. The surface handling is so vibrant and active I feel like these would be so much more powerful if they showed a little more... I don't know, struggle to grasp the form, or maybe simply your own realization of the form of the head / face. To put it another way (and this is a really lame analogy), it's like if you apply some extreme Photoshop filter to a photo, you can still clearly tell it's a photo. Do you see what I mean?

    These are great! I feel sort of tingly and sparky when I look at them. They remind me of Louis Wain's mad cats.

    Well, a bit...

    Woah, these are sweet. Especially in that they're actual paintings, and mot digital. I think the top one's my favorite. It looks like the muscle fibers are unravelling.

    What were the references, if any?
