Patterns from Photos

11-19-2009 01:57 AM by KCKID | 3 comments »

Well I have showed off some of my carvings and now I would like to start an entry and open some dialoge on developing patterns from photos. I ran into a program that will take a photo and turn it into a line drawing where I can then use as a pattern. Has anyone else ever done anything like this?I plan on displaying a couple of relief carvings that I did this way in my projects.
