Text Portrait

I created this text portrait by using GIMP. It was fun and easy process. For this effect you need a black and white portrait with shadow on half of the face or you can convert color portrait into black and white. I got the steps to create this effect on youtube and here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suw8O406wk0

and if you want to use photoshop to create this effect you can watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fj_iwNgv8aQ 

The man in the portrait is Chester Bennington, who recently passed away. He was a lead vocalist for the alternative-rock band called Linkin Park. I grew up listening to Linkin Park and most of you have probably came across their music at least once. The quote in this portrait is from one of their song called The Messenger. If you enjoy listening to alternative-rock, you should definitely check out Linkin Park.

The portrait i choose was in low resolution, so it will look better if you choose a high resolution image. Also the font i choose had jagged outline. It would look better if the font had smoother outlines.

  1. I love Linkin Park and it was really sad to hear he passed away. They have great music. I really like this and thanks for posting tutorials. I might give it a try with GIMP as well.
