For my Computer Graphics class. Well. Sort of. I was supposed to do a typographical portrait of a famous person, so I picked David Tennant (of course). Anyway, I wasn't supposed to do it this way, but I think it looks better than the way I was supposed to do it. It's better looking and easier to see who it is.

Here's the "proper" one, for anyone interested. [link] It's kind of smallish D:

Oh, and I definitely cheated a lot with this one. I wasn't supposed to write any of the letters myself or alter them in any way, but all of the small letters re handwritten and a lot of the large ones have bits erased to smooth things out.

Typography is an interesting art and I will probably look into it more in the future. I'll buy myself a wrist brace first, though. Two and a half straight hours of clicking and dragging = OWWW.
Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 - Approx. 3 hrs.

Now ~Draikairion and I are Typography-Doctor buddies! She made a portrait of Matt. Go show some love!
