Self Portrait - Illustrator

Self portrait done for my illustrator class
(mostly using the "evil pen tool of dooooom!" as sarah calls it.)

There are some weird coloring issues that must've occurred when I saved it as a diff file type.. but I can't really fix it b/c I don't have illustrator on my home computer ):

Well I used Illustrator.. so I used the pen tool to draw shapes, using my face as a reference and just tried to pick colors as close to the actual color as I could, then made some of them darker or lighter.. w/e it needed. Its really just a bunch of shapes on top of each other. Its similar to layers.. I dont know if you've ever used Illustrator before so.. haha
Its kinda like cutting out pieces of construction paper and gluing them together.
