Competition: What's In Your Head?

Finished
What's In Your Head?

Objective

We're all familiar with expectations versus reality. The internet has taken this concept and the meme community ran off with it. You may or may not have seen a series of "what you actually look like vs what you think you look like" images. This is that.

You must provide a current image of your character. This can be drawn or a premade image/commission, but it will serve as a contrast to the "what your character thinks they look like" portion.

The image that will be graded for this competition must be how your character imagines they look like to others. This can be played up for comedy or taken in a serious manner.

Example meme

Erinyes provided the bottom image for me to use and gave me permission to use it. I added the meme texts on both images. (Obviously.)
