Well I finally finished my mesh portrait a few days ahead of schedule! This was a challenge, I've seen some really realistic faces from illustrator and decided I would give it a shot. The face, except for the eyes, is a single mesh. the chest and shoulders are also one mesh. The hair is a crazy mix of subtle gradients and flat colors.

I hope you all like it, let me know what you think. I really appreciate the feedback!

100% illustrator, except I output a PS file from Illustrator and shrunk it down in PS then output for web, as I do in all my illustrations.

This is incredible. We just got into vector portraiture in my class and this is really inspirational, although I doubt I'll be delving into mesh just yet. Again, really incredible piece here.

My college graphic software class is doing a gradient mesh project at the moment and the professor actually gave us the link to your tutorial as a helpful link to push us in the right direction. :)

That's pretty cool, I hope it helps!

That reminds me, I've got another gradient mesh tutorial I need to post on my site.
