I have not been doing portraits for sometime since the shop that serves as my outlet closed down. I am trying it out again since it feels like new territory at this point. I started of with a photo. With the use of Gimp, I converted the photo into a black and white photocopy image. I farther increased the contrast and erased unnecessary elements using Inkscape. Next I traced the image on to the board using carbon paper then cutting. The back board is 1/4 in plywood covered with book cover material.
