While the original image that I used for this piece came from Buffy's musical episode "Once More With Feeling," the composition is made up almost entirely of text. I used a screencapture from one of my favorite scenes in the episode, cut out the background, pulled it into Illustrator and "dumbed it down" so to speak. I used the Live Trace/Paint tool to isolate the image into about six colors, and then I pulled that vector image back into Photoshop to overlay the text. It sounds a lot more complicated than it really is. For a tutorial about how to make an image out of text, go to: [link]
It's really a great and easy to follow tutorial!
