mimicing engraving

Recommended Posts

I've got a weird project where the client wants to mimic the engraving style of something like this:

I have a process down in illustrator from a past project (basically layers of parallel lines with masks) , but have no idea where to begin for a more streamlined/automated process

 

Any thoughts?

a few years ago i had a similar request and did some research on that Wall Street Journal stipple-style portrait technique.

 

WSJ calls them "hedcuts" or "headcuts". A google search of that brings up a bunch of links and tutorials so that might be a good start.

 

I think there may also be a specific plug-in, but I couldn't find the name in my quick search just now.
