Thinking & Practice 05/02/14

Using help from Steve’s Illustrator tutorial, I managed to generate my own vector using similar techniques.

I made the basic face shape outline using the pen tool. This was refined using the anchor points. I added facial details, traced the contours of the eyes and the outline of the nose and added shadows on the face where necessary.

I added a background and texture to make the final edit:
