for some reason these portrait are getting harder and harder for me to do. i have to look at the picture for hours, before i can work on it. i still have problems with the skin tones. i am using photoshop element to break down the picture. there are people who are just tracing the picture and getting the same results. that is the way i want to do my portrait. instead of playing with the computer to get what i want. i just order a book by aniko feher who makes portrait quilts. i hope this book will help me out, because i don't like the fact that it takes me days to get one portrait made. the other techique only took me a couple of hours to do.the prince portrait took me two months to do. i don't like working on things to long, i get bore and throw it in the corner somewhere.
check out what i have done so far. i will quilt it tonight.
stitches for now1
