Creature sci-fi faces

Creature faces drawn this evening and some warm-ups from the day before. Warmups was drawn from Brett Bean-pictures as reference.
Feels like I'm getting more of a decent grip onto this type of playful cartoony line-art after all.

Brett Bean practise

 I thought I'd do some focused practise, and in order to help me doing so, I thought I'd select an artist to focus on for the rest of May and June month. I've recently seen the works of Brett Bean after having listened to a livestream - and I'd really wish for my own character designs and environments to have that fluidity, playfulness and daring shapes. This is what I attempt to practise at the moment.
As you can see on the sketches below, the proces was as follows:

- 4 warm-up sketches, from some of Brett Beans own artwork.
- Hence a caricature - reference photo from this great gallery - but it didn't felt pushed enough. The hair could have been an even bigger shape and enhanced more.
- Nextly another attempt at the same woman from a different angle - she ended up looking really mean!
- Finally another reference photo and a simple coloring beneath

This was a little about my current attempt at improving my character design. Have a great day!

Oh, and this was a little fun drawing Ser Jorah from Game of Thrones:
