Typepro 4 – Self Portrait Using Typography

Posted on: February 25, 2011

Research on self portraits using typography:

I quite liked the different toned hair effect and the use of different text sizes to build up the volume. I decided to use a similar method.

This technique involves concentrating on the shadow/negative areas which emphasises the structure of the face and makes the eyes pop out. I quite like the style.

This piece seems floral and I think it is constructed very well.

My attempt:

I think it turned out ok, it was quite a long process due to the hair. I will re-do the type self-portrait at a later date ^^

I have finally revisited the self-portrait: Type Pro 4:  Self-Portrait Revisited.
