With the OGR deadline coming up I felt I needed to get more done in preparation for the presentation. I took some time to develop the Sha and after some pointers looked at how I could unify the facial expressions of Nian. While I am happy with the Sha's success, I feel I have hit someting of a wall with Nian regarding certain expressions.
I was unfortunately only able to get five designs down before I felt like I could do no more. Why this happened I am not sure but there could be a variety of factors that I'd feel would be inappropriate for the blog. Although a feeling of repetitiveness and unfamiliarity with drawing faces like this may be two of them.
