Craig Robinson has posted a tutorial covering how to use Photoshop for pixel portraiture. He uses techniques to give himself hairstyles from Lennon to Bono. [Via] By the way, if you like this kind of pixel art and have somehow missed the work of eBoy, check ’em out.
Greg from TheManWhoFellAsleep has devised an interesting approach to tracing photos, creating a kind of hybrid 2D/3D look (reminds me a little of stencil art). “Yeah, I know,” he writes, “Anyone can trace a drawing. But so what? I am doing it, and you’re not.” Well, okay then. Actually, I love the candor. Art museums wouldn’t drive me half as crazy if many artists said, “See this totally arbitrary thing I’m doing here? I just happened to think of it first, and now I’m a ‘genius’ with a permanent income stream. Sucks to be you.” [Via]
