    I think teeth can look incredible in scroll saw portraits if they are done right. Leaving them out has never been an option for me.
    Kerry, what are you talking about? I'm referring to your last portrait that you recently posted. Where are her teeth? I think you left them out. Actually, I'm having a tough time finding teeth in any of your portraits on your site.

    Nice job Jesse ! one thing I notice is the narrowness of the bridge holding the lady's face. It will work fine but be sure to cut that large area last and cut the outline of the face first when doing it to help keep from breaking it near the end of the cut. That large piece is gonna vibrate DAMHIKT ! ( Don't Ask Me How I Know That )
    Keep up the good work and practice practice practice !

    It looks good I can't wait to see it cut, Start blowing dust on that so we can all see the finished product.

    Very nice Job Jesse and excellent comments from everyone.

    I have to disagree with you on the teeth issue Mike.

    I think teeth can look incredible in scroll saw portraits if they are done right. Leaving them out has never been an option for me.

    I personally don't mind the narrow joins at all. It all depends on how comfortable and experienced you are cutting them. I have cut many joins that have been not much wider than the blade itself and they have come out fine. Worst case scenario, they break, in which case glue them in place where they broke off and no one is any the wiser.

    Just my opinion is all.

    Again Jesse, great job...and remember the old adage, "Practice Makes Perfect"

    Keep it up bud and be sure to share the pic of the finished item when you are done.

    Thanks all for your help and i don't mind the 3cents. I figure the only way to learn is to have some constructive criticism from others who have saw before and also made patterns. I respect all of the comments and greatly appreciate them. I don't mind you saving the file and marking the corrections. I'm a school teacher and I mark things also I feel needs to be corrected. My new dewalt should arrive thursday and I want to get some patterns together so I can make some saw dust fly.

    Thanks again
    Jesse

    Firstly, I agree that that's a great first pattern.

    One other thing I did notice, aside from what has been mentioned is that your Mom's right shoulder (left looking at the pic) is a little too vertical - I assume that was the edge of the original photo. Perhaps it could be curved a little more.

    This is an awesome start to a great pattern.
    Once you run them through inkscape you can grab some nodes and give yourself a little more room on the bridges, like Daryl said.
    A lot of it will depend on the material you are cutting.
    I like the fact you have cleaned them up and have very distinctive light and dark areas. Great work

    I think it looks good too. However, I would find a narrower area for the gate in your mom's mouth, someplace not quite as noticeable. I would also get rid of the teeth in her mouth. I don't think you can make teeth look natural in a scrollsaw portrait. This is my 3c worth anyway. Other than that, I think it will really look good, provided it looks like your parents. We haven't seen the actual photo.

    looks pretty good from what I see. although there are some potentially close areas around your Moms teeth and her right shoulder and your Dads chin hope you don't mind I saved it and marked the aereas in question as a guide

    Portrait pattern I made

    I made this pattern of my mother and father plan on giving it to my dad for fathers day. I haven't run it through inkscape to smooth it out. This was made from 2 different photos. Any comments are welcome.
