Luz made me do it

I feel the need to apologize in advance of this post, be prepared the pictures you are about to see may cause eye damage and a weak stomach..... that being said, Luz posted a challenge yesterday and I knew if I didn't do it she would force me to- you know she used to be a Marine! Anyway the challenge was to draw (yes she said draw) a picture of yourself. For a hot second I thought about ignoring it but like I said she used to be a Marine and has a way of getting people to do what she wants. Then I thought about cheating, I figured I could take a picture of myself and use some photo editing software to end up with a picture that looked like it was drawn by a person (more importantly, me) I did that and this is what happened

I knew there was no way I could pass that off as mine, I got the math gene not the art gene. So then I thought it wouldn't be cheating if I traced the picture that the computer generated for me, that way I could say I actually drew the picture so this is what I came up with..... warning this is where it gets scary

In the event anyone is still reading this, I feel the need to justify the picture. No my eyebrows are not two different shapes, I don't think I have a double chin and to the best of my knowledge, my eyes are the same shape or as close to it as humanly possible.

Lucky for Luz I have a decent sense of self worth or seeing my version of myself would have pushed me right off the cliff.



OMG...OMG...were you trying to kill me as punishment for my challenge???? I almost F**Cking chocked on my biscuit. I was so not prepared for your humor!!!! ROFLMAO...beyond amazing.

That's what I did.. I looked at a photo of me and just tried my hand at making it look exactly as the picture...all I know is that those colored pencils help>>LOL>> I have a double chin, but I didn't draw it..hehe...hell I even look a pure magic!!!
You rock man...way to go and thanks so much for doing this for me!!!!!


P.S. You're right, I'm trained to kill...but as broken as I am, I might not be able to catch your young ass!!!!
mmm...which reminds me..
I am an expert marksman...LOL.
OOoops I've said too much...LOL

You did a great job, and I compliment the guts it took to put yourself out there like that.. I know how it feels. At least you drew your face, I drew an imaginary me... lol! I really really like the photoshop version as well. Happy Friday!! :)
