Low Polygon Portrait in Photoshop

In this fun tutorial I will show you how to create a low poly portrait effect in Photoshop.

I like to call this a Paper mask effect, or Origami effect.

The basic thing is to cover your model with a bunch of triangles, not squares or any other polygon shapes, but triangles.
Smaller triangles are, higher resolution of a model you will get, and opposite.

It is really fun and easy process.
You can apply this effect on anything that you like!

I will not provide a tutorial files, because you can work on your own files.

Have fun!
