  • what is this art style?

    Newbie question:

    Is there a name for the currently popular style of art which depicts the features of someone's face in two tones (black and white), using shadows to show shape? Also would be appreciated any links to good examples of this.

    I've exhausted google image search, deviantart, shutterstock and haven't really found enough examples of what I'm looking for - the face looking directly at the camera, no head tilts.

          Thank you PrintDriver. I haven't looked into lenticular lenses but that is very interesting. I will have to do some research on the subject in general.

          There are folks on this forum who are better qualified to answer this, but I know that what you see on your screen is never guaranteed to be what you'll see in print. The best way to see what something...
