How to create a digital portrait in adobe illustrator

A few days ago, while I needed a little break from my database assignment, I created this digital portrait of my daughter, Hannah. Everyone seemed to really like it, so I decided to share my knowledge and create a tutorial on how to do those cool portraits using any photograph. All you need is Adobe Illustrator and a photograph! No skills required and it's really easy to do! Watch a video tutorial or follow my written instructions below!
