Dreaded Commission

A friend of mine asked me to do a painting of her and her daughter's "lovies". I warned her that I don't do "portraits" of any kind, but told her to bring them over and I'd give it a try. These are the girls. Pretty roughed up and pretty scary looking, really. But talk about "feelin' the love"! These gals have had it all!
Here's my take on them. 
I may have grayed them down a little too much. (They are kind of "dirty") Think I'll add a few warmer values to the face and arms of the plastic doll so she looks more, well, like plastic. Plastic surgery so to speak.
