Days 1-15 of 30 faces in 30 days

I am doing the 30 faces in 30 days challenge, through an app called Sktchy. Boy it has been hard! It started March 15th, and it has been very hard to keep up.  I am posting the first 15 days! Sktchy sends out a photo each morning for us to work from. It might be about a nose, or an ear, etc.
This is 1-15.
