Good start. Look kinda like a young Ray Romano. Better see some big bushy eyebrows on the finished one!

Thanks fellows
As you noticed I started to use CPS v3.5 and I have to tell you, it's a great plugin!!!
I have to mention that this is my first plugin, because I never used one until now.
Caligraphics recommended me the CPSthanks Cali
Mike, whos Ray Romano? And yap I have bushy eyebrows and Ill put them on the cartoon.
Because its a cartoon some elements like eyebrows, eyes, nose, ears, and mouth will be emphasized because those are who represents me, or in generally a person, more

El_Newty: Ray Ramano is a famous comedian here in the States. You may have heard his voice in the movie Ice Age, he played the role of Manfred the wooly mammoth.
You really do look like you could be his brother or something....I get that this was probably a complement from Mike as Ramano is a very likeable guy. (his TV show is called "Everybody Loves Ramond")
I agree with the big eyebrow thing too. Can't wait to see more
