2D Vector Polygonal Self Portrait
This project was developed through the use of Adobe's Illustrator application. Setting a photograph of myself as a background template, then proceeding to create small triangular shapes to build up the structure of the photograph. After this long and laborious task I then simply used the colour picker tool to color each of the triangular shapes according to the values found under that shape on the photograph.
Then adding a simple gradient background based on a key colour found in the image, my eye color in this case. I was able to produce a very nice effect for a custom self portrait that is a little more interesting then a simple photograph.
