Close used photographs as his source material. So, I took a picture of myself in a similar pose to his self portrait, cut it out and made it black-and-white in photoshop, and placed it on a white background to emulate the composition and color of his work. Instead of re-creating every detail of a photograph using airbrushing and painting techniques, I used digital manipulation and filters in Photoshop to make the photograph look like it was painted or drawn. In order to pay homage to his creation process, I also incorporated a grid into the final piece. The image was enlarged to show detail.
