An old friend of mine commissioned me to make a vector portrait for her brother and his fiancée, as a wedding gift from her. It was printed on A3 canvas, and came out brilliantly.
I had to combine the best photo of the woman, and the best photo of my friend’s brother to make this work. I captured the main features of each person, and added little detail to both of them. I didn’t spend effort on their clothes, as their faces were the most important. I also didn’t have much time to complete two people in one portrait.
For the background I used simply Illustrator to vectorize the background they were in.
The final artwork is in greyscale, which looked gorgeous when it was printed.
