it's vexel. you trace a picture on photoshop by drawing paths and filling them in with colors. it's a very intricate task because you have to draw different paths/shape for every shade/color. sorry i couldn't explain properly but i hope you get the point somehow. ^_^
What photoshop tools did you use to create this image? It's very nice. My area of concentration in photography is eyes and I would love to know how you created this if you don't mind. It's really phenomenal.
I I clicked on this picture, expecting to be slightly wowed, but I was completely taken back. I sat here, staring at this piece, for a really long time before I could think of a suitable comment. This is absolutely amazing. It's a piece that I would frame and hang in my room. I love it! Keep up the good work.
