Lots of different thoughts, lots of different emotions.
My original idea was to make all of the faces a little more detailed. Ultimately, however, I really loved the simplicity once I got started. When it comes down to it, that's an important thing for artists to know: not only what to do, but what not to do.
In this particular case, I'm glad I was able to catch myself before going to far.
Truth be told, that sounds like a pretty great life lesson as well...
