I was finally able to cartoonize my photo, not bad (I think). Karl's tutorial (Family Portrait Artist) is real fun, extremely easy to follow and is making rounds (via SVN via Photojojo). Will be doing more photos of family and friends.
As for the photo making itself, I used Inkscape, didn't bother to spend time on hair for obvious reasons, and spent more than expected doing the business shirt. Next ones would be easier. What do you think?
