Hi reaganza23, thanks for your support. I don't have any tutorial for this work, in fact the process is really simple : you need to make a basic & clear shape of the picture with a single or several threshold filters. Then the shape is re-build on top of that with words. That's all.

The key is to be really precise to get that clean effect, it requires time and many adjustments. Honestly this picture is kind of a prototype, I consider the next type portraits I made better than this one.

My artwork was highly influenced by this one, a portrait of idol covered by typograohic words made by one of their song lyrics. Awesome idea.

You're welcome dude!

This is the main idea behind the picture, and it's much more important than the technical appearance. I made some portraits of that kind, I may build some others later.

Wish I had more time to do all I would like to. :)

Actually, Amnesiac wasn't all that appealing to me. I'll have to relisten though because it took me a while to get used to Hail to The Thief as well, and it's now my favorite album! xD
