After Franz Xaver Messerschmidt

I drew while waiting for Henry at Cub Scouts tonight.

Franz Xaver Messerschmidt (1736-1783) created very unique "character heads" a collection of busts with extreme facial expressions. Some at Wikimedia Commons.
Also, here's a documentary that can be watched online.
