Here is how I do it (May not be the best way, but it works lol):

Before anything I'd like to say that I use Illustrator CS5 for this part, hopefully it's similar across all versions, but I don't know for sure.

first, to warp the text I type out what I need, select it, go to "type > create outlines"
Then, I create a box around my text that has no fill and no outline, then I select both the box and the text.
With both selected go to "object > envelope Distort > make with top object"
now I have text that I can use the "Direct selection tool" (Shortcut key is just press -> "A"), To warp however I want.
Then I put the image I want to copy on a new layer under the text layer, set the opacity down to like 20% and then star warping the text in the text layer to match the curves/details of the portrait.
The Key is to do it only one or two words at a time... so it does take some time.

Then I take just the text layer into Photoshop, create a layer of just black then "hide" it.
Create a new layer under both of these layers that is the original picture we are copying.
Then go back to the text layer and using the "Magic Wand Tool" I select one of the letters from my text. Then "Right Click > Similar" and it should select all text on that layer.
Now without deselecting, show your hidden layer of just black, select that layer, and then press the "Delete" Key.
Now "Right Click > Deselect" then hide your text Layer, and You should have yourself a nice little portrait :)

If you are only allowed to use text and no image behind it like I do, and you want different shades of grey or anything, you'd need to change the color of the text before you "envelop distort" or change it in Photoshop with the magic wand tool one letter at a time.. which would be a pain haha.

I really hope this helped and goodluck on your project!! I really want to get a proper tutorial up soon for this but I've been so busy with fun college art stuff lol. But I'll get one up eventually :)

I love Olivia and love this piece. I've done like 5 typo-portraits of my own (for example Scarlett Johansson [link] ) but I haven't try style you've used here. I don't quite get it, how it's actually done (probably using warping effects on each phrase? or some liquify transformation or whatever?), but it's wonderful. :-)

haha im really glad u like it, and Olivia Wilde is the shizzzit ;) but yes i group each phrase and then warp it to match the curves of her face. its tedious but worth it i think. but yours is fantastic! it must have been a long process for you as well

Sounds like interesting technique indeed, I'm kind of tired of my old technique, so if I do any typo-potrait again, I'd love to try similar style. I've seen it before, but I just never dared to do it. And thanks, I'm glad you like my work. Yep, it was quite time-consuming (like 32 hours). :D Do you remember how long it taked to make your Olivia approximately?

Id say around 8hrs total, including some time to mess around with colors and stuff. So i guess thats not too bad haha. but i will hopefully put up a tutorial next time i do a typo portrait, u probably know the general idea of how i did it, but maybe ud be interested in seeing it anyway

8 hours sound good. Well, I think I get how you did it, but I'd love to see the tutorial anyway, so I added you into my +watch, just in case. :)

Hey Artsouls,

I'm glad u like my work. I checked out your skateboard pic and I think it looks really cool, it has a style all its own.

As for my portraits, I will definitely be putting up a tutorial in the near future, I just need to find the time.
If I remember, when I'm done I will post a link to it on your wall if you'd like.

Keep up with your style of work tho too, its awesome!! :D
