Illustrated Portraits

 

The human face can be the most challenging and difficult thing to draw. On paper or on a computer, the contours and shades can be a challenge for even the most seasoned professionals. To capture the essence of a person, to capture their personality in an illustration can be the most frustrating, and most rewarding, assignment, as Brooks Institute Graphic Designs students have found.
Each student was tasked with creating a portrait. Some took the assignment and created images that haunt and images that inspire the imagination. Each portrait created reflected their creators graphic style of choice. These portraits are a small sampling of the creative works of some of the talented students in the Graphic Design program.
