Hey,
I would like to cartoonize myself in a similar fashion as was done in this image:

The cartoonized person is in the very centered top position. I believe he drew himself, then scanned and colored it out in photoshop?

Is this true? Can anyone recommend a tutorial or tell me how I can do this?

Thanks so much I really appreciate your help.

If you have photoshop you can "Pentool" and come up with something similar to this

Or you can use Illustrator and do a Live Trace which is easier to use. I made the above image using PS Pentool though.

Here is an image of me.

But yes it does look like the person drew it out and then colored it in PS.
