i've been wanting to do a vector portrait for a while, but i never really had the time for it before now. i first tried to do it in illustrator, but it kept making my computer crash so instead i used photoshop. it took a while, but i'm pretty happy with how it turned out. i think that the finished product had over 60 layers between three groups... my hand hurts. it's a really good way to study how light hits the contours of a face. i'll probably be messing around with more vectors in the future.
