Scroll to top
Read Time: 3 min

We publish a wide variety of tutorials and tips on Vectortuts+, but it's not often we get to see the other side of our tutorials. In our "Created by You" Tuts+ Workshop, we shine a spotlight on the fantastic work created by the students of Vectortuts+ and give you the opportunity to take part in Round Six! This month we're dedicating an article entirely to Beto Garza's tutorial of how to create a Self Portrait in a Geometric Style.


From time to time, we have readers show us what they've been able to create by using our tutorials or what's been inspired by one of our tutorials. Often seeing what others have made inspires others to give it a go. This is what this Tuts+ Workshop is all about... sharing with our readers what you've created! Due to a massive reaction from the community and readers of a recent tutorial by the wonderful Beto Garza, this months Create by You is dedicated to what you guys and gals have achieved as a result of the Self Portrait in a Geometric Style tutorial.

Tuts+ Workshop: Created by You Special, Round Five

What inspired our readers is the below final result of a recent tutorial on how to create a self portrait in a geometric style. You create your portrait from a sketch of basic shapes and then go onto render it in Adobe Illustrator.

Below are some great end results our readers have achieved, in a variety of styles and palettes. Well done all!

How to Get Involved!

Would you like to show off what you've been able to create by following our tutorials? Are you proud of what you have achieved? Join the Vectortuts+ Facebook page and post what you've created by using a Vectortuts+ tutorial.


  • Artwork must have a visible similarity to one of the tutorials on the website, so readers can see what they could possibly achieve! It doesn't have to be perfect, nor does it have to look exactly like the end tutorial result, just similar.
  • We have readers checking out the Vectortuts+ Facebook page, so please link to the tutorial you used so others can check it out also.
  • You may submit more than one design, however we may spread the pieces over different articles to give other people a chance to shine as well.
  • When you publish your work on Facebook, please include one or two paragraphs about yourself and/or your work and a link to your website/online portfolio. We love knowing more about our readers, especially when we see how much creativity and talent they have!
  • Have fun! All submissions are welcome - regardless of whether you've been vectoring one month or ten years!
