Mosaic Mixed Media Portrait

Combining photography and vector drawing can lead so some fun and interesting portraits. Below is my original image.

After editing my photo, I added shapes with no fill and a white boarder that overlapped each other over my subject.

I colored each shape a different color and changed the opacity to 20%.

I merged my layers and used the Quick Selection tool to easily cut out each odd shape. I added a separate Hue/Saturation Filter to each shape so I could adjust each one individually. I went with mainly warm colors.

After I had my colors how I liked, I moved over to Illustrator and used the Brush tool to draw in white lines to outline my subject. Below is my final image.
