Here is a large scroll work I am making for my Daughter who recently gave me a grand daughter. It is attached to 1/4” plywood and printed on 11”X17” paper. This will be the biggest project I have done yet. Currently I have done one of her eye’s I will try and post more pictures as I get them done.

Let me know what you think I created the pattern myself using photoshop from a picture I took the day she was born.

Thanks for looking let me know what you think.

Woo Hoo! Nice Job! It is good to see someone who makes their own patterns! So many scrollers don’t anymore. It looks great man! Can’t wait for the finished pic!

I’d love to see this done just to see how you do the glasses and the hair that is a lot of detail.

When your finished she will always cherish it. It will be wonderful.

Have seen this kind of work posted on here before, it interests me. How is it done? Can anyone point me to a site where I can learn about it?

mtenterprises,

I am a self-taught scroller and I just started playing with pictures. I printed out a picture in “gray-scale” or in “black and white” as a starting point. Using color photos is kinda hard. You begin by looking for absolute black: the darkest shaddows that are in the picture. Build your pattern from there, adding black areas to make the picture. A good way to practice patters is to print your picture onto an 8.5×11 paper and slide it into a document protector, use a sharpie to trace the black. Check your progress now and later by taking the picture outand holding your pattern against a blank page. Good luck!

I used photoshop with the filter photocopy then tweeked it with thresh-hold.

I tried using GIMP but it was to much for me here is a good guide if you want to give it a try.

Thanks,
