Tuff - no need to feel silly - you've got to start somewhere, right?
It's always interesting to watch a WIP take shape ... A sketch more so than a fiction. Most of us don't have a clue where to begin a simple doodle, so these are great. And once your classes end (and freedom rules),
you can post them as they continue to take shape.
I like the "blank stare" - very "Village of the Damned"
