Am I Or Are The Others Crazy? by VaIisk Am I Or Are The Others Crazy? by VaIisk
Part of my Typographic Portrait series!



My personal favourite Einstein quote:
"A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?"


:iconcommentplz:

This one was personally requested by ~AnnKristin1 earlier today, so I worked on it straightaway. :D
I like it, personally, and I never would have thought to do Einstein if I wasn't asked, so... Thanks for that, ~AnnKristin1! :dummy:

Uh... He's made up of "Albert," "Einstein," "Genius," and "Mathematics" and the background is a biography I found on both NobelPrize.com ([link]) and Biography.com ([link]).
I found the picture on Google.

Photoshop CS4; 2 and a half hours.

Simply genius (for staying in the character), the idea to sculpt the image from the adjectives that describe the character the best is an amazing idea. Using the biography on the background give a psychological deepness to the art, while the contrast between the "grey bio" and "rainbowish" foreground helps to make a 3D effect whose give strongness and life to the whole art! Great, simply great! In the end I think that this is a real piece of ART ... Andy Warhol surely would've liked it a lot! (Anyway, between the 4 pieces you did in this style, this is my favorite!)
What do you think?

Actually, yeah, that is pretty interesting! I don't know too much about Einstein, personally, so that's really fun to know. :D

How do you even start to create something like this? Cool type piece btw. :lol:

Well, first I separate the colour range into shadows and highlights, then I use that as a layer mask for a type-layer, and I make a layer of "random" text for the "border" of the portrait...

It's a pretty long process. :P
But, worth it!

Thanks! :dummy:

Hahaha, maybe I will. xD

I've never done a tutorial before, so it would be something new to me. :noes:
