As I was thinking of making more advance tutorials, maybe its time to make a quick simple tutorial where beginners can easily figure how it was done. Previous video I taught you #textportrait,we have wrote little text on photo.In this tutorial you’ll gonna learn how to create a #Typographic ┬áPortrait in Photoshop. We will use two methods-

1.You will learn how to make a text follow into a path with the use of Pen Tool (P) in more artistic way.

2.You can resterize text layer and transform it in different ways.

To work on the eye lens, Choose Ellipse Tool (U) and start creating a circle. Once your done adjust the circle using Direct Selection Tool (A).Create eyebrow in same pattern.Whenever you need to shape text ,resterize it and transform-use warp option.Group all layers.

repeat the same process on the nose,mouth and hair. Again make sure to use the darker part on the image as the guide on making the path.
