So my excuse for late delivery on the Monday sketch is I was distracted with a conversation.
This one is based upon a sculpture by Franz Messerschmidt (* 1699, † 1792) a German-Austrian sculptor most famous for his "character heads", a collection of busts with faces contorted in extreme facial expressions.
I've seen a number of the originals myself. It is fascinating to think that he used himself as his own model before photography was invented.

Nice sketch. I love that expression.
That's a much better excuse than not sleeping or brain shutting down (which are my usual ones).
Extreme expressions are entertaining XD and very challenging to make look convincing I find x_x
