i really enjoy the first one...
Yes, the first one, in his stone face gaze, sums up your statement about exaggeration and is darn fun to look. The use the line weight to pull to the nose and mouth adds to his pointed look. PS the others are fun too.
I like the "wood carving " feel in your sketches. hint of the body and looooong neck in the last picture balance nicely with her loooong faceI enjoy it
