  • Need help with a photo, please...

    Okay, so I have GIMP, follow the tutorial, and the 1st one went pretty darn good. Next two, not so much.. but they were a less detailed so I thought, okay, it's just my lack of experience... and I got help (which I am not ashamed).. LOL

    Now I am trying this one... which looks to be the best photo (quality wise) ... so, I have no excuse as to why it's not coming out right... UNLESS, someone can tell me even though it appears better quality, it's a tough pattern 'for some reason or another'

    'anyhow... I'd appreciate a pattern, and to know if it was easy, difficult, what program you used etc.... or any other words of wisdom...

    I may not be cut out for making patterns, but not willing to give up yet... I really like this new hobby.. and lots of family members with requests.... any/all help is greatly appreciated...

      Here's another concept of Mady. The hair, especially blonde hair is very difficult to do. ...Ron

        Wow, awesome job, from both of you.
        And the other part is, how fast you did them. I can work on it for 3 evenings straight, and still not have an acceptable pattern... lots to learn here...............

        By looking at your patterns, I think maybe I was trying to take too much out - not leaving enough detail. Partly perhaps, because I am still new to this and the intimidation factor of cutting all that without messing it up.

        But, it was more than just the hair I was messing up... <sigh> I'll keep trying.

        Really big THANK YOU, I will be cutting them both out, since her Parents as well as her Grandparents will both enjoy it. I am glad for your generosity, and this board.

          The finished project

          Here is the finished project.
          My pictures seem to bow (widen at top & bottom), but the piece isn't.

          - I am actually ordering me a digital tablet to assist in editing the pictures. I hope it helps.

          Thanks again for the help

              BTredway - Looks great!

              Ron - if you don't mind, what software did you use to convert that picture?

                Bert...the cutting turned out great, thanks for sharing the finished version.

                Bob...Basically, I use Adobe Photoshop and some times Gimp which is very similar to Adobe and is free on thier website. Also I usually send the finished pattern thru Inkscape for better lines and clean up. Hope this helps.

                  Ron - I'll experiment some more on my next pattern. Not sure what sending it through inkscape means, but going to get it and see what I can find. Thank you again.
