Here's my entry for the fantasy self-portrait challenge: me as a faun or satyr.  Admittedly, me as a faun is not that different than me in real life, except the horns, the goatee (which I sadly don't have in real life), and the fact that in reality I am usually not shirtless.  This was my first pixel art in a long time...I really enjoyed it. 

Here is the reference photo I used for my facial features and pose:

As you can see, I borrowed heavily from this picture (because I'm not great at pixeling my own face).  Here are some WIPs to show that I'm not a tracing nub:

Looks great, though I think the perspective of the portrait and the background is different (it looks as if you were falling). The horns are a bit hard to see, I'd enlarge them or place them on the forehead. Great colors. My favourite part is the background.

this is amazing, i recognized your face right away and the colours! <3  colours and shading remind me of alex hanson white.

Great colours and background and good likeness.
Could perhaps do with a bit more AA. Particullarly the hair looks a bit noisy and could be softened with an under used between colour (light orange), and the jaw line.
