        I think its good'ish ..lol

        Two points...
        1. you have been very kind to the subject and given them a 90lb instant weight loss, 50lb is artistic licence.. but 90 must be bribery.
        2. The beard is going to be the hardest part to cut as it is, so I'd of done that differently.

          If it were me in the photo I'd sure like it if you made the fish bigger, maybe give it some fangs too. AND, I'd buy you something nice for the weight loss.

            Unfortuantly I have not lost weight, but for some reason I look skinny'r in the pattern, don't know why? Thanks for all the comments guys! Smitty

                just my opinion,
                but i think the subject holding the fish looks a bit thin ,in the pattern,
                also,i would try and put some more detail,in on the lower part of the shirt,looks a bit emty,
                just my opinion,
                not doing much
                and busy doing it

                  The comments are right on about the weight loss. I kept switching back and forth between the two photos. I think there is a just barely visible line on the right hand side of the face that should go in. The eye brows are missing and the left ear is not well defined. I think that right hand 'straight line' that defines the right hand side of the face is what gives it the 'thinner' look and I think I would try to move that 'out' (to the right) a little bit and make it just a bit 'curvy.' Same thing with the right arm - there is a line marking the muscle in the arm but it is missing in the pic. I'd put that in. It will help define the arm a little bit more.

                  Did you use a program that makes portraits or did you us a picture / drawing program. I'd suggest you download Artweaver ( http://artweaver.en.softonic.com/ ) if you used a portrait making program. I have not fully explored Artweaver yet but it's free and it looks to be a relatively easy program to do a little manipulation of your black and white.

                  I'll look forward to the final product.

                      Dan, I hope you don't take offense at this post but being a new and learning pattern maker, the apparent weight loss bothered me so I went ahead and made the attached image. Although it isn't yet a completed workable pattern it could be made into one with a little cleaning up and tweaking and it doesn't reflect the apparent weight loss.
                      Perhaps when you did yours, you inadvertantly stretched the image in Gimp or Inkscape, whichever you used.
                      Just my two cents for what it is worth.
                      Nice fish by the way!!

He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....
