This is a friend that I thought would make a really nice portrait. The pics show the original Picture, The pattern for cutting and the final project.

That’s really nice.
I like how you did the hair.
What program are you using?

Thanks Crane, The program I use is called Gimp II, a Google search will give you plenty of results.

nice work!

gimp for windows installed fine – tanks for telling the soft name!

any tips to make the pattern from some color image?

maybe …

image/mode/grayscale and then filters/artistic/photocopy? (or cartoon or something else?)

any help are welcome!

Ic, Sounds like your’e on the right track.


Filters/Artistic/ I usually make a layer with both Photocopy and Cartoon.

I make another layer titled Pattern from one of the other two whichever looks best, and as I make the pattern I am constantly switching between orig/desat/photocopy and cartoon for different views of different details.

Good Luck, Hope that helps.

Great project, and you did use the right model for the portrait. Nicely made.

Have your say...
