Vector Portraits: How To Turn Your Photos Into Art!

Vector Portraits: How To Turn Your Photos Into Art! - student project

Hi there! I'm Melissa, and Illustrator and Graphic Designer.

For my class, I will be teaching students how to create a Vector Portrait from a photograph.

This class will be for people who have a fair understanding and knowledge of Photoshop & Illustrator, and who have some experience in using the Pen Tool. Over the years I have developed some techniques for making this process easier, and now I want to share that with others as it can be a bit overwhelming when first starting out.

For the Class Project, students will use the skills they learned to create their very own Vector Portrait of themself that they can then use as a profile picture on social media!

Let me know what you think of my Class Topic!


Here is he link to my outline -


Below is my Intro Video. This is just the first draft, which I will improve upon.

It's a pretty cool learning experience seeing this, as I've never done anything like this before. Seeing the video I instantly knew how to change it and improve upon it. (I'll definitely add some music over it)

I would really love any feedback from you guys!

Let me know what you guys think, I'd love some feedback on my content as well as cover image etc.

Thanks a ton!
