Portraits, Polygons, and the Pen Tool…Oh My!

So…one of my reasons for taking a Facebook hiatus was so that instead of wasting my spare time scrolling through posts, I could refocus and work of some new skills I have been wanting to learn. My last post was about double exposure, but this time I worked on turning photos into pieces of art. To say the least, the (dreaded) Pen Tool and I became very close friends!

I love the polygon portraits that I have seen while browsing the interwebs…so I  figured it was time to make some of my own.



I love this style! I also love how varied this style can be depending on how detailed you want to get.

In my next two pieces, I took two of my favorite pictures of Bubba and gave them very different looks. I love how they both turned out! I plan on making a lot more cartoonized portraits in the future.


Let me know what you think!

    These are genious. We esecially love the one of Eli in his red glasses. That would make an awesome poster. If it is possibe to have it printed that way
    Your Dad would cherish it. Birthday present? I could pay for it.
