Thanks for being an inspiration of this art by:

I don't really gets the meaning of making this kind of art but after I get inspired and finished it, I finally understand what it really mean. I don't really do the exact rule of making DIGITAL CIRCLISM just like on *BenHein but instead I make my own style. Making kind of this work needs a lots of time and effort.

according to *benhein,

You might ask, what exactly is Digital Circlism ? This is a modern artistic expression, a mix between Pop Art and Pointillism. It is made with digital tools (this is just a personal definition).

In my opinion, the most important thing to focus on before starting that kind of project is to understand the dynamic movement of someone's face. I usually paint each circle individually on a black surface with a sharp round brush in Photoshop CS4 (it could be any other graphics creation software).

It is also essential to pay attention on the aspect of each circle (changing slightly the size and color for every circle is always better). That's the difficult part, because there can be several thousands circles in a single portrait. It has to be done with harmony, according to the main lines and dynamism of the subject represented.

I usually make bigger circles in the lighter areas of the subject and smaller circles in the darker places. This gives more volume and a 3D illusion. There is no limit, it's a new technique and I think there is much more to do with it.

do you draw the dots individually? do you ever use circle-brushes on a tapered line? I'd love to se a in-progress video of your process, I find it VERY inspiring and really want to give it a go myself. :)

(also, I actually prefer you minimalistic style to BenHeine's. His is undoubtebly really skilled, but your style is more attractive to me :))

really? :wow: I'm flattered, I cannot made just like on BenHeine's art it so realistic the transition of it's color, that's why I use my own style.
