Here is what I managed after watching this class, including a little process video I made for my Instagram, @masonalxndre. I watched the course and then attempted to do this all in an hour as part of a design challenge. It took me a bit longer, but I am happy with the end result, let me know your thoughts!! Oh and follow me on instagram for more design work ;)
The two photos I used as a basis for the character. I veered away from these slightly but used them as a base.
I focused on highlighting my hair and chin as two accent/prominent features of the avatar. You'll see in the process video it took me a while to get the hair right as I am not great at drawing. Hope you enjoy!
Edit: So apparently I can't upload video files, so here is a link to my instagram post:
