Using Illustrator you will create a portrait using vector tools. You can use a photograph as a basis for your artwork. Consider drawing from a photograph & then scanning the sketch as the basis of your illustration or using Photoshop to alter or distort your photograph.
To complete this project you will determine a method and create your own illustrative style to create your original work of art. You may trace the photograph or create your portrait based off of a drawing you make from an image... remember the more you change the image the more original it will be.
