So to proceed with the assignment I had to take 10 different pictures of myself. Different styles different angles. And choose the best one to make a vector portrait out of.
Before I began snapping a million photos of myself, I researched the different styles of vector portrait online. A lot popped out. And most of them were marvelous. Out of a myriad of examples, I found these three examples to be the most fascinating:
|Audrey Hepburn by Garth Glazier|
|Natasha Romanov (Scarlett Johanssen) by billgoldberg|
I like these three vector portraits the most because they're achievable. All three of them also oozes a mischievous cool which is what I am trying to go for. I wanted to make a vector portrait resembling movie posters and I think the Natasha Romanov vector portrait by billgoldberg makes the best sample.
So, in order to be able to make vector portraits such as the ones above, I had to snap pictures of myself in those styles. And thats what I spent a whole evening doing. I also took some of my old photos that I thought appropriate and suitable.
