Dalai Lama

I received permission from the photographer who took the original picture to use his image, so here it is! Originally by Stephan Bollinger. The Dalai Lama!


Photoshop lines


Illustrator Lines


Close up of hands


Close up of face...

So, I finished, but out of respect for the original photographer of the picture, I'm not going to post the whole thing unless I get permission. It's the Dalai Lama. I kind of love him. The original picture is by Stephan Bollinger if you want to look that up! Also, this took FOREVER, but I'm glad I did it. I'm thinking about blowing it up huge and painting it now that I have the tones down. It looks great printed and I really improved my illustrator skills a lot in doing it. So, yeah, the course is awesome, make a picture!

Thanks for the likes! 

(Original Post) I'm not going to lie, I've had quite a bit of trouble with this and it's taking me forever. Mainly because I couldn't manage to create the keyboard shortcuts or tablet shortcuts. But this just goes to show that you can do it with a mouse and the long way and it still works. I'm not uploading the original because it's an image I found online, but I think you can get a clear idea of who it is. I'll add the finished version as soon as I finish it! 

The green lines were my photoshop roughs and the cover image is me filling them. Going to have to go back and align a lot of the corners after I've finished the rest of the face!

This is my first shared skillshare project, so please be nice!
