Vexel attempt #1 – RPattz

To fight off artist’s block and trying to get used to the pen tool, I thought I’d try something I’ve been admiring for a while, but never had the balls to try … vexels. This is my first attempt and I have no idea if I’m on the right track or if I did it correctly, but every shape was done with the pen tool in Photoshop. I’m studying several tutorials and I know I could do more with the hair, but right now, I’m still trying to figure out what the best method is … hence the unfinished state of his locks.

As for the subject matter, if I have to stare at anything zoomed in to the nth degree, it may as well be him.
