Does it look like me?

I had a few reservations about my ability to accomplish this, but what’s the worst thing that could happen? So I chose a picture with a cheesy grin, enlarged it and printed it. I did play with a few effects in a photo editing program, but came back to the original.

I covered it with freezer paper and traced the basics. Looks a little freaky with no eyes!

I didn’t want to get too overwhelmed with decisions, so I pulled some dotted fabrics and this is what I have so far.

No worries about shadows and light. I just wanted to go through the process, come up with something that looked like a person and it does. But, does it look like me?  A little helmet-headed, but it’s a start!

I think it looks like you, you captured the parts that are individual to your traits. Love those polka dots.
