Vector portraits are simplified images made up of general shapes and shades. They are easy to do from a picture, and look impressive when completed. Being a vector, you can resize the image without losing the quality. Every artist has his own style of creating a vector portrait ranging from ultra-realistic to very cartoony. Using either Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator, you can learn how to transform your photo into your vector self portrait. There are loads of tutorials available to teach you in detail, but here I present to you some hand-picked / chosen ones.
