Let's Put it to a Vote
UPDATE: Thank you for your votes! I'd still love to "hear" from new voters. I decided to go with the pencil sketch BUT I'm going to try to make a color version that looks like me. I'll get to it eventually...thanks everyone!
I finally got around to creating a thumbnail for my profile. I love the shot of Mac and in all honesty my animals are way better looking than I am: however, I feel that I do want something that is a bit more personal. I did a quick sketch of myself and then I turned it into a "color" version. Then I hit a dilemma. Which one should I use?
I certainly wanted to go with the color version since it is more "grabbing," especially when its shrunk down. The dilemma is that I am just better in my signature medium - pencil. The pencil sketch has more personality than the color version which is "dead." As I've posted before, I still have a ways to go in making the transition from the sketch to a final color product. In addition, the pencil sketch looks like me. People could recognize me from that sketch. I'm not so certain with the color version.
I was sitting in my attic art room pondering this and thought - hey! I have to post my picture in order to pull it into my profile so I'll just throw it out to my readers. So please leave your feedback and I'll make my decision with all of your input. Thank you!! PS - I can easily fix that little blip on the color version in Photoshop. I also can redo the color version. And yes, you can always vote for Mac. :-)
