Rumour has it that Picasso suffered from intense migraines. Apparently the way he painted was as a result of the distortion experienced during the migraines. This was a source of inspiration for my portrait. Firstly, I scanned my face, as this would create an odd form of distortion. Following that, I traced the image in AutoCAD. The cad file was then imported into 3D Max where the shapes were extruded. As Max allows one to add modifiers, I used this as a further aid to distortion. To render the concept design, I created a graphic in Photoshop, and applied to the model. Three lights were added and radiocity was applied. Rendering was aided by Vray.
