More sketches

Some of the doodles I've been making trying to understand variables of character design. These are about neotenic features in faces. If you have ever seen Fred Moore's drawings of cute ladies, you know what I am talking about: The tall forehead, the small nose, the big eyes, etc. I am not sure if switching the ratio has exactly the opposite effect, but it is still and interesting variable.I wonder how a monster like Medusa would look if Fred Moore drew it?  I also wonder if we have moved past these assumptions about beauty, or if we can use them to challenge our expectations regarding characters?
