This was the end result of me trying to make a full portrait of what I actually look like. It's hard, though. At the time I made this, my hair was sticking up, and that made it nearly impossible to draw. More than that, my eyes are actually hazel, and as anyone who knows hazel eyes can tell you, they're difficult to capture. Considering the eye color fluctuates in the light, it's not inaccurate to portray me with green, brown, or even blue eyes; I've seen them all (heck, I've even seen my eyes *yellow!*) in different lighting condition.
More than that, even at a distance, I'm lying down, so it's kinda hard to capture my arms and torso in a mirror--particularly considering I'm using the arms to draw the image.

Still, though, I think overall it's a good job. I got close to my actual skin color (I'm tan--not really tan, but more tan than a lot of people in Washington Weather are), and captured the hooded jacket I'm currently wearing quite well. (Yes, it goes almost up to the top of my neck. Quite annoying; I much prefer my other three or four.) That said, I forgot the strings for the hood.

So, not a great job, but a decent one, at least.
