sketch disorder

Like many other artists I have the obsessive compulsive head sketching disorder. As a result I have a lot of head sketches lying around, that never made it into fully developed character designs. Here are some of those at various stages of completion.

Awesome, Jens :). Why do we love sketching heads so much? I always have this obscenely guilty feeling whenever I do it.... but it's SO NICE.

Fantastic stuff. I'm assuming this is without reference. Great!

Love the way you draw faces/heads. I have the same disorder by the way.
