Resting Muskface - quick warm up sketch

I set the timer to 25 minutes to get a good fast warmup session going. I've been meaning to draw Musk ever since his news of leaving the presidential council hit. There was an article that juxtaposed an angry Trump face with a subtley unimpressed and disappointed Musk face. So I call this look the resting Muskface.

Week 2. First and second attempts at comic style inking. These are 8x10s. I started with a blue pastel sketch of my facehead, then did the inking with design markers on tracing paper, laid over the sketch. The first one (seen below, with crosshatching and parallel lines) took me a little over 3 hours. The second one (seen at the top, with pointillism and some other new technique I’m calling ‘squarism’), took me about 5 hours. 

pointillism (pointl-izem): n. the gateway to controlled madness.
