 A 55-year-long apprenticeship (making a modest living by drawing faces for newspapers, and a solid art education as well as plenty of practice before that) is all it takes. With that, anyone can do it, I guarantee.

 You can read up on this guy by checking "kaleidoscope" in Wikipedia, and following the link the inventor. He had a great face as well as an interesting life.

 And by the way, the famous TD-er Mum managed to put together faces at about this level of competance without any training or previous practice at all! So if you'd rather skip the 55-year preparation, ask her how she pulled it off. THAT rates awe.
