I discovered this challenge a little late so I don't know how much I will be able to finish. Here's what I've got so far.

Here's a little more work done. I lost a day thanks to several thousand files getting accidentally deleted, so I didn't want to use the comp for anything until I finished "resurrecting" them.

I was just looking thru the rules again and realised that I missed some of it, I didn't pay them much mind at fist since I didn't think I'd be finished anything in time thanks to starting so late. Anyway, Here's an ortho of the front:
