Typographic Self Portrait by SteamboatLyssie Typographic Self Portrait by SteamboatLyssie
This is one possibility for my self portrait that was assigned in my design class. We had to make a typographic portrait, which has been pretty challenging. I hated my last version so I'm in the process of redoing it. Anyways, this is one idea, I'm also going to try to wrap some text for another one.
Let me know what you think, I appreciate the feedback!

Done in photoshop, 2 hours

(I added the wall of text behind the image, I think this is what I'm going with for the final version. The quotes are from Walt Disney)

oh yeah, now i see what you were talking about with the pixie dust. well at least you got the Al Pacino line in there haha. I hate to do this to you but I don't actually have any suggestions. i love this. I think it looks great! what i like about it is how clean the presentation is, the color gradation and the lighting with the shadow in your face and shirt. yup. I think it's awesome.

i know, i thought you'd appreciate the believe haha. and thanks very much! i appreciate it. im not sure if i like this style or not for my final turn in...im thinking about doing something where the words are more legible or where i have a background wall of light gray text. i dunno though, i need to experiment some more with it.

ok so with the gray update. first of all i like whats written and the text style. i do feel like it was crisper looking with out it, but i don't feel that it takes away from the presentation as a whole.

yeah, i agree--i just had to add something since i relied pretty heavily on a tutorial and i didnt want to get docked because of that. but yeah, i like it without the wall too. thanks for the feedback! i appreciate it!
