Portrait progress

The above is just a non-related sketch I did and liked.

I chose to add a little three-dimensionality with blossoming, lotus-like petals. Then I chose to add lines extending to the edges of the page (they are faint and light blue right now) to show a flower being pulled into blooming before its ready (remember, everything about this project is SYMBOLIC)
The red -looking dot in the center of it all is actually bright orange in person. I did this with transparent orange paper and just rubber-cemented it on top of the drawings... some of which I darkened the outlines to make sure they show through.
