Pick/take portrait of yourself
Open image up in Photoshop (file open)
Firstly we are going to vectorise our image. This is done by creating blocks of skin then adding in the rest of the important details.
Create a new layer (ctrl + shift + n) name it skin! Select a colour you want to use for your skin. I decided to go with the colour #f8daa1
With the magic want tool (press letter W on keyboard) click the body and hold the shift button until all of the bodys silhouette is covered. Dont include any clothes or hair.
Fill shape with skin colour (tool bar-edit-fill-foreground colour-#f8daa1)
Hide this layer
Create new layer called skin layer(ctrl+shift+n)
Select a brush (press letter b on keyboard)
Change colour to dark brown
Pick brush with 3px radius
Go to skin line layer
Create line work to outline the body using the pen tool. (press p on kepboard)
Use pen tool to create lips, eyes, nose, eyebrows and all defined features on body/face.
To get into more detailed areas e.g eyes change the size of the pen (make sure the fill colour on brush is on transparent.
Create new layer. Name is hair
Using pen tool again outline hair(when reaching finer bits of the hair change the size of brush to give a more gentle look
Fill colour into match the colour you want your hair to be
(OPTIONAL) If you want to make your hair look more detailed on a different layer (name it hair) you can give your hair highlights by using a darker/lighter colour using the pen tool.
Below skin layer create a new layer (name it colour) on this layer paint eyes & lips & face.
To get in closer to the shape zoom into image (ctrl +) use brush tool to fix image to desired colour
When doing the highlighted bits on the cheeks/chest/nose bring the opacity down low and change to a soft brush
To add the background you go to filter section on the tool bar at the top filter-blur-motion
