If you're going to follow along with this tutorial, you'll need a portrait photo, either of yourself or a friend or family member. The size of the photo will depend on what size you are going to print your final piece, if you are going to print it.
You'll also need a copy of Inkscape, the free vector line image editor, which is described in more detail in our review of the application and you'll also find a link there to the Inkscape website where you can download your own free copy.
If you're an Inkscape or even graphics software newbie, this is a great tutorial for you as it uses just a few simple tools to produce a fun result. If you've got your copy of Inkscape and a suitable photo, press on to the next page to get underway.
