NaNoWriMo 2019: Day 12--Physical Details

Day 12 Word Count Target: 20,004

Today's offering is a collection of graphics depicting things like eye color and shape, hairstyles, hair color, and facial hair. Sometimes finding the name for a particular color or style or what I have in mind can bog down the word flow, so having resources on hand is always welcome. Of course, hairstyle, in particular, is highly influenced by the culture's fashion sense and time period, so you might have to research those particulars if you are writing in a real-world era, country, etc.
