Face-a-Day - Sofia

This Siberian girl has Asian-esque green eyes. I initially wanted to draw her because her chin looked big and I thought it would make for an interesting drawing. I guess I chickened out because I ended up not making her chin so big. It might have made a good caricature, but it didn't turn out too bad anyway. I like her unique eyebrows.

Russian people have very interesting features. They are fun to draw.

Happy Halloween!

Face-a-Day - Yerofei

This old Russian man moved 10 miles from Agafia, the hermit, so that he could help her. He used to take care of the goats for her and chop firewood. Since he has a pegleg, he couldn't do much for her or himself. She ended up having to chop firewood for him, bringing the logs into his house, and tending her own goats. She said he is useless and that she has to take care of him instead of the other way around, but she goes to his house and they listen to the radio together. Of course, she is shocked by what she hears and wonders what is wrong with these suicide bombers.
