A portrait of our lovely Eleven done entirely out of text/letters. There are a few phrases scattered about but over all it is just a random jumble of letter forming his image. I realize it looks quite messy, that is sort of the point...if your lucky I might even post the self portrait I did like this.

[link]<--Ten.::.This is Eleven

Done in Illustrator in approximately five hours (SHADING TAKES FOREVER WITH LETTERS!) The font used is available here [link]

Clearly I do not own Doctor Who or Matt Smith, thou I do travel through time and space with this lovely man called The Master.

Perfect. I even love the fact that it's transparent bg. Any hints on what the texts say?

This is amazing. :D The idea is very original and I love how you shaded it. :meow: Wonderful stuff. :aww:

Thank you. It was actually biased off of a self portrait project I was assigned a few years ago so I do not actually know how original it is as my prof had to have gotten it from somewhere but it is certainly not normal but I really enjoy it, I find it helps me to relax.

You know it love. Now that I managed to get my hands on Illustrator I have been making text portraits like crazy. I just thought I would toss one up here.

Isn't it addicting?? I recently got Illustrator, Photoshop, a bunch of other Adobe software thingies and a shiny new Apple MacBook Pro to play with them on. :D

I am judging you for your Mac...I just decided to go out and build my own computer, it has an amazing lovely heavenly graphics card of awesome, windows seven and the entire Adobe Master Collection CS4...*sigh* I love it...not to mention the 22in monitor.

Thanks ^_^

22 in monitor is quite awesome. Isn't it heavy though??

Silly, it's a flat screen, of course it's not heavy.
