I give you Exhibit A:
An actual, unedited picture of me from several years ago that I am willingly sharing with you. Actually, if I'm to be honest I think this picture is funny, if not unflattering.
I thought that picture would be a good jumping off point from which to try an exaggerated likeness.
It's an ok start. We all have that one feature that we despise... mine would be my nose. It has the added bonus of being oddly hard to draw despite its, shall we say, prominence.
