      I have used Gimp and it takes a bit to get used to. I have Inkscape loaded but have not used for portraits.

      There is a good tutorial using Gimp for portraits at Scrollsaw Village.

          While I have Gimp loaded, I don't really use it, I use Photoshop7, even thogh they work very much the same. As far as Inkscape, I use it to clean up my patterns and to finalize the size of them. So Gimp/Photoshop is my main work horse for making my patterns and Inkscape is my cleanup program.

            First off how thick is the board you cut?
            When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
            that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
            for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

            I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

            Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it) make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
