The Darth Vader helmet was relatively simple to recreate in Illustrator. After using the posterise tool on Adobe Photoshop, I imported it into Illustrator and begun drawing the black outline using the pen tool. After that, I simply traced a solid grey outline in a layer below, and traced some light grey areas in the layer above. The final image is clear, minimalistic, and instantly recognisable. I would consider this my most successful attempt so far at recreating an image in Illustrator.
