Here is a little video showing the making of my Elvis portrait. It is made entirely with circles of different sizes and colors on a black background.
I've always admired the King of Rock and Roll. I wanted to make something unusual and give him the aspect of a solid and invincible robot... but not a real "terminator" because he was especially a romantic man with one of the most beautiful voices ever...
The whole portrait took me several days of intense work. There is no trick, I've positioned each circle one by one.
Please also have a look at my other circlist portraits: flickr.com/photos/benheine/sets/72157623553428... (including Lady Gaga, Bob Marley, Johnny Depp... and many others)
