The last day to vote for your favorite entry in Animation Magazine‘s Face 2 Face contest is rapidly approaching, the polls close at 5 p.m. PST on Friday, Jan. 30.

Entries fell into one of the subcategories: realistic male, realistic female, realistic child, nonhuman humanoid (orc, goblin, etc.), nonhuman (reptile, insect, etc.), or cartoon/stylized character.
