Illustrated Avatar

I'm not a big fan of taking pictures of myself so I usually use a drawing for my personal avatars on social media. I usually do a cutesier rounded design with less detail, but I wanted to experiment with adding more detail and shadows. I spent 3 hours on this in Adobe Illustrator layering in different colours into the shading till I got it to a place I was happy with. It's not what I normally would do but still looks great and is an example of how my skills can grow and will continue to do so.
