Digital Illustration Project Inspired by Chuck Close

To practice using Adobe Photoshop in my Digital Illustration class at Cal State Fullerton, I was assigned to create a portrait using similar techniques to those of Chuck Close.

I chose to create a portrait of my boss/friend/mentor Marisa and to present it to her as a gift before I graduate:

Marisa Portrait

Her image was divided up into a grid. I selected an individual square, then created a small design using the Brush tool and my Wacom Bamboo tablet after sampling colors from within that square.
