So I recently underwent some serious plastic surgery and changed my looks (cartoon looks) to resemble the real me. It's amazing really how I was captured so perfectly . . . I mean, this is exactly what I look like every single day. I even write in that dress. No, for real . . .
I wanted to create a customized "brand" so I hired someone, because you know what happened when I tried? Stick figures. That's what happened.
And I needed the picture to capture certain things about me, such as:
2-My love for coffee, wine, and pizza.
3-My need for notebooks and pens.
etc, etc, et. . .
I thought it would be a long process or something, but the artist nailed on the first try . . .
I sent my wants with this grainy cell phone pic . . .
And got this sketch:
So naturally, I said, "YES! I love it, thanks so much this is great!"
Then he said, "This is just a rough draft, calm your pants." Okay, so he didn't say it quite like that because he's a professional, but I'm a writer and I feel like embellishing a bit. Actually, he very humbly said it was just a rough draft. Just a rough draft . . . pffft! But me? I was wowed because I was sold on the "rough draft" just as it was.
Then he sent one with color! And I was in LOVE . . .
Yes, I realize I'm saying I'm in love with myself, but but but it's cartoon me . . . so it's okay, I think. Right? o_O
But she had lighter hair, so I was like . . . but I'm a brunette, can you change the hair color? And what did I do that for? It's after all an "improved me" but if you're curious, here it is:
And yes, it's great . . . but it loses a bit of spark I think, especially in the eyes where the lashes just blend into the hair. Anyway, that should teach me to trust the artist eyes in the future.
So the first one wins! Special thanks to Ricky Gunawan for the amazing work!
Say bye bye to this image:
. . . It was great while it lasted! lol
And say hello to this:
Our resemblance is on point, right?
Right? RIGHT? :P
