Mark Ruffalo GQ Magazine Cover
In my Specialized Study of Design course, I was given the task of creating an illustrated portrait of someone famous. One of the options for the portrait was to create a magazine cover and to mimic the design of an established magazine publisher. I decided to illustrate the actor Mark Ruffolo and mimic GQ Magazine's design style. Creating a portrait was extremely time consuming and difficult, but I am really happy with the end product that you can see bellow.
The photo in which I based my illustration off of.
Further converting it to a black and white photo and setting the dimensions to be printed so that I could trace it and create a tri-tone trace of the highlights, mids, and low light areas. Accompanied by the sketch.
