Mathematically Defined Newton

Newton probably never thought his face would ever be mathematically defined, but while creating the video I posted in the last post I played around with creating an svg (Scalable Vector Graphic) which is just mathematical vectors (with some additions) used to draw a picture. I tried to imitate Godfrey Kneller's portrait of Newton as hard as I could but I wasn't happy with the result (I think I could have done the eyes better).

I still spent a lot of time doing this so I thought why let this work disappear with the next hard disk crash and decided to post it here.

Here is the SVG rendering of Sir Isaac Newton and this is the resulting image:
