  • The picture, the pattern, the end result

    My first attempt at a pattern and cutting. I photographed the hawk north of town several years ago. I'm not sure I'm pleased with results. I was hoping for a little more detail showing the feathers and the wings. I just couldn't seem to decide what to erase and what to leave in. Please give me an comments you might have so I can hopefully improve.

    I think you did a nice job on the pattern and cutting. I'm not a designer so would not know where to begin on improving the pattern.

        I think it's great just as you have designed it. Particularly considering it is such a
        distant photo. Great work all around.

          looks like a dandy to me. The pattern is great and the cutting is very well done.

            Dan, I think you did a great job on both, the pattern & cutting. If you wanted more detail, all I can think of is maybe elongate some of the feather markings, so they will show length in the feathers. It isn't necessary, but, if you want to change the pattern, I would make a different one to make changes on. Save the one you have here. I like it. I also did one of a Hawk that was in our back yard, but, I do mine with pencil to make the pattern. Good work, just keep at it. Thanks for showing us.

              This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

              I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

              Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

              How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

              I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

              First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...

              I think that it important for any business to keep track of what their customers are concerned about. If a business ignores such things, they will suffer in the long run. Ignoring comments in your own forum or not replying to emails is not a good strategy. Good companies are always on the lookout...
