Ugly Is the New Attractive

Finally, the moment you've all been waiting for: a chance to look up my nose. There it is. Cola, charcoal, hands, messy, sanding it down, destroying it, building it back up again, scratching with my fingernails... The white one has gesso and the other one does not. From a picture I took of myself.
The nongesso was done first. That's brown paper you see behind it, I made holes by purpose...
The whiter one first had a layer of orange watered down acrylic on the paper, before I started. You can see it a little? Maybe?
They're about 5 feet tall... I think. And yes, another product of Life Drawing II; a few more to go...
