Playing with Manga

In my inbox I get a number of freelance jobs which if the mood hits I can apply and try my luck. Last week a job was posted looking for a cute little child alien illustration. It was something that took my fancy and I tried with much success to put my thoughts on paper. The result was horrible until I figured out I had no idea of how to propotion a manga face (have not dealt with the body yet). I found this site which is rather cool, instruction wise , Below is the results of it, and while a manga fan may say it is not such, I am pretty happy with the end result :)
