When you sent me this one for the challenge Danielle I was rather pleased.
It's a good challenge and Derek's design is stunning and so well proportioned.

I'm making mine at the moment and getting the face right is a real challenge.

This is Derek's Facebook page as well, https://www.facebook.com/d.cn.wong

This one was a challenge, did you see what I did there...…….Ha Ha

I tried a couple of variations on the face and still to me
the mouth looks more Joker like than "IT"

I did start off with rolled eyes but struggled getting them to sit as I wanted.
So went with 160 eyes just tied in, as in picture one, it did not look right to me.

I went back to rolled eyes on picture two and changed fore head/eyebrow look.
I also made the top mouth section a lot wider, plus added a smaller nose.
Again it still did not look right.

On picture three I added rather larger fore head/eyebrows.
I also added a double lower jaw section so the mouth sat in a little on the design.
I think this is the better one but still not quite the look.

It was a good challenge though, I might have another go soon.

This is challenge 20 for us both. The original design is made by jamroly66 on insta.
I'm not sure if they have a facebook or website with other designs.
On insta the structure of the designs all follow a similar pattern
and they just make male and female characters.

I really love these manga characters by jamroly66 ... each one wearing unusual funky clothes.
I thought and looked at the pics a lot before twisting so I could work
it out in my head before as looked pretty technical.
I'm just happy I worked out the head.
Here is my attempt anyway....

This is my version of the design, again I really enjoyed making and trying to
work out how others construct a design. As I said when we set out on these
challenges I was not that keen on making others designs but I'm now a
convert as I do a slight variation on a theme here and there but also
keep pretty good to the design we are making.

I also made another design from jamroly66 as we were originally going to
make the design below but Danielle saw the girl in the white dress and
asked if it was Ok to do that design. I was fine with it but had already
made the first choice so posting it here for completeness.
