Step 1: Line work is first step in making of vector portraits. Mouse and graphic tablets are used for this purpose. If you are beginner I suggest you to use mouse for linework.
Step 2: After line-work next step is base colours and skin colours. For skin base colour you use eyedropper tool and then modify it to according to your style. Similarly, with lips and clothes.
Step 3: Shading is the most important which determine either your its a flat simple portrait or detailed one. For blending colours you should use an additional layer and drop its opacity to 50% percent.
Shading is divided in 2 which are dark areas and light areas of skin. Dark areas is further divided into smooth and harsh shadow and you should use light and dark shades of same colour.
This is it you can create one by yourself if you want us to draw your portrait then you can reserve and order us on Fiverr
