I decided to use a dynamic reference image. I liked the birdseye view angle as rarely do I see myself in this perspective. I also wanted high contrast, so stuck with the bright blues and oranges in the reference image. My original background was very busy and littered, so swapped it out with a duller burnt sienna wash so the blue drapery and neon shirt popped out.
