Actually, there never was a tutorial or something... Just keep adding words to make the lines and shadows (bold words for shadows, bolder bolds for even darker shadows, and normal fonts for lines)

thanks anyway...

please do! It's not actually hard to do this, but you definately need patience. it took me around 8 hours to put the words on on their place and another hour on its postwork on photoshop! If you try anything like this, use Illustrator to put the words on its places, so you are able to print it or to zoom in later :)

your very welcome, keep up the great work.

well as a matter of fact I just finished a piece today. I tackled it with a different approach. I created a brush with my girlfriends name and then I use that brush to paint a portrait of her. Its already uploaded if you would like to take a look at it.
I would really like some feedback on what you like about it.
