Gillena, you did a fantastic job of capturing your likeness. I did a self portrait one time where 1/2 of the face looked like me and the other half looked like my sister!

I love both pics - the dark and the light (great grunging). I also enjoyed each step along the way from your photo to the hand drawn portrait.
