Cartoon Self Portrait

This project was introduced as a practice for our final project using Adobe Illustrator. I have never used this application before so trying to get my bearings was a little frustrating and took way longer than I anticipated. But, I do have to say that this definitely forced me to learn Illustrator in a night.

For this project, we had to pick a cartoon character, pose like them, and then cartoonify ourselves like them. I chose Alice from Alice in Wonderland! The picture of her is my inspiration and I tried my very best to pose like her:

From starting Illustrator and learning it as I went along, I am very happy with how my cartoon self turned out. I worked on my face the first and I think that turned out the best in terms of matching the shadows and highlights to how they are in the original picture. However, working on my hands were the bane of my existence for two hours. Overall though, I had a lot of fun working with Illustrator and I think that it is a successful practice piece!
