Quick technique makes vector portraits a breeze

I try not to post “Here’s a cool link” posts on Turdhead.com, information pills but… well… here’s a cool link: It’s a tutorial on creating what the author calls “pop art portraits” of friends and loved ones — a simple technique that might be of use to people who want to do cool things in vector-art animation, viagra too.

It reminds me a little of the old “Can you draw Skippy the mouse?” courses from childhood, but who can resist a 5-minute crash course in making recognizable, easily manipulated vector-based portraits?

Heck, I could never draw Skippy, but after a few minutes with the tutorial, here’s my drawing of somebody I actually know:

Sure it’s no Andy Warhol, but… still.
