This one came about from a photo taken which I was over in April and photo editting software to give it the cartoon effect.
The challenge is to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else.
Avatar representative of our behaviours and natures. Others can judge or perceive through avatar image what kind of that person's nature, what is taste. Some confusions can be clear. .
