I loved this class, and im pretty new to using illustrator so it was a good learning curve to brush up my skills using the pen tool and combining shapes.
I loosely used my picture an inspiration but decided to change the angle of the face to make it more simple. I found it difficult with getting the correct eyes and I had already decided that I wanted to do something 'halloweeny' seen as it is october! I wanted the avatar to be snake/ vampire like, with the eyes and fangs, and i have a snake tattoo on my back so I wanted to incorporate this into the avatar somehow.
I'm pleased with the overall turn out, my main objectives were to create something simple with soft colours and to include the snake tattoo.
I hope you guys like it, and any feedback would be great!
