Weirdly lit desk selfie!

Played with a lot of different eye variations and made minor tweaks to the face shape throughout. I ended up liking a sort of sleepy/mellow look to my eyes. 

Final result:

I haven't decided where I'll use this but I was happy with the result! I appreciated watching Ryan's process of laying the foundation and then making tweaks and experimenting with different shapes. It took some of the pressure off that I usually put on myself of getting it just right the first try, and allowed for more playfulness in the process. I've made a couple more avatars since this one and really enjoy them.
