    This is a Text portrait I made with Usain Bolt's FULL biography! The whole work is actually a black and white digital painting with a huge text in the background. The original size of my Bolt's text portrait is huge (9000 pixels wide, 300dpi).

    For more information about my art:

    Usain Bolt is a Jamaican sprinter and a three-time Olympic gold medalist. He holds the world record for the 100 metres, the 200 metres and, along with his teammates, the 4x100 metres relay. He also holds the Olympic record for all three of these races. At the 2008 Summer Olympics, Bolt became the first man to win three sprinting events at a single Olympics since Carl Lewis in 1984, and the first man to set world records in all three at a single Olympics. In 2009 he became the first man to hold the 100 and 200 m world and Olympic titles at the same time.

      too simple — you should go with the actual letters colour for better wow factor instead of just making the layer mask from the letters.
