Hi there. I present you my tutorial. I thought that the technique of Typography Portrait is quite obvious, but since there are so many people asking about that, it's better to make a tutorial. :)

Pardon my imperfect english. :)

This is perfect!!! I couldnt figure out the path tool XD

Thank you. Path tool is hard to handle from the beginning (when I started I was really afraid of it.. I just didn't understant that crazy tool). But after some practise you'll do just fine. ;)

I believe you can do the same or even better than my typography portraits. Just go through my tutorial, follow the steps and most importantly - be patient, then you make something amazing. :-)

You're very welcome. I'm glad it helped you. Your result looks good! Maybe I'd try some color overlay from the base photo, but it looks great even in black & white, so it's up to you. :)
