Who Needs Chopsticks? Part 2

Hey, so after sleeping on it I decided I wanted to balance the composition a bit and add some color and ambiance. I added in some background detail with the lanterns and that inspired the color of the piece a bit. I feel a lot better about it now. It was also quite nice to pick up my brushes again as it has been a few months since I have used them. All in all, I'm pretty okay with how it turned out. Enjoy.

Who Needs Chopsticks?

I came up with this rough idea for a sketch featuring me with my mouth wide open vacuum sucking some of my favorite Chinese foods. I spent some time doodling in my sketchbook trying to come up with a composition I liked and did a final line sketch. Below are the results of that work. The problem now is that I don't know what to do with it. I played around with some coloring in Photoshop, but wasn't liking the way it was turning out. So, yeah, not sure what to do. I think I might just leave it for a day or two and look at it again and see if I can come up with something. Anyways, here is what I got.

Rough sketches

Final lines (at least for now)

My Hair is Too Long

Every once in a while I get that urge to chop all my hair off. I haven't done it yet, but everyday I come up with more and more reasons why I want to cut my hair.
