Self Portrait DPS drafts

This is one of my self portrait project ideas. Still playing with it trying to make it look cooler. I feel like im good at basic shapes but i have trouble adding details that add to the design, without going overboard. Because of this I feel like some of my stuff still looks "unfinished".

Anyway, I thought it would be funny to use my FAVORITE blue color. And i decided to do a funny picture of me because most people I know know that I love to talk and make people laugh and I thought it would show my sense of humor. I'm having trouble incorporating the other designs, but I'm sure everyone is. I've tried some other ideas, but this is the only one i felt reallly good about.

Anyone reading this, please leave a comment/email with any critiques or suggestions!
