In this lesson, we were asked to create a portrait inspired by David Carson. The portrait included text which formed the shading of our face. Here are some steps into how we created the image:

Step 1: Firstly, we opened Adobe Illustrator.

Step 2: Once Adobe Illustrator had loaded, we then created a New Document.

Step 3: With the settings changed to our liking and the New Document created, we then took a picture of our face with the built-in MAC webcam.

Step 4: Once we took the picture, we then saved it to our Google Drive folder and then imported it into Adobe Illustrator.

Step 5: With the image imported, we then used the text tool to create differently: Sizes, Fonts, thickness etc. Furthermore, we then changed the position of each individual letter to create the unique David Carson style portrait.
