Tupac by zilben Tupac by zilben
Used a pic as reference, great practice in some AA and dithering.

EDIT: hmmmm.. something is wrong with DA, you have to DL it to see the full size, i dunno why.. :S

Daily Deviation

Given 2004-09-08
Whether you are a fan of Tupac Amaru Shakur or not, I'm sure you can still appreciate the work that went into Tupac by ~zilben. It is a tribute to the influential rap artist with some amazing dithering and manual anti-aliasing skills. Rest in peace, Pac. This rendition of you will live on forever in the pixel realms!

it's awesome how you made this look nice, instead of rushing to make it quick so it turns out bad and is a big insult to Tupac.
good job! =) i love this.

to be real, it was damn easy.
1st. filledthe background copy.
2nd. i cut out the lines.
3. added a gradient layer from right to left.
4. cut out the lines
5.added highlights, changed the opacity, did it again
6. added details with a white brush.
7.added effects
8.added a shade layer and radial highlights in the gradient layer to make certain aspects glow

kinda vauge but thats pretty much how i did i, took about an hour give or take
