Process - After creating the general shape and composition, there was inevitably a lot of fine tuning to capture a real likeness and personality, particularly for creases/wrinkles and the shape of the mouth. The triangular eye reflection in the tutorial wasn't soft enough for the aesthetic I wanted, so I replaced it with a circle. The mouth took most fine tuning to get a representative shape and expression...

Colour - When I was happy with my avatar as a likeness and a useable icon that was intricate enough to show some personality, and bold enough to use at different sizes, I messed around with colours for fun...

In use - I incorporated the icon into a potential concept for a personal logo design...
