Posterize is what I really meant. Thanks, Sophie! I still need suggestions as to what you use to do it There used to be a program but it became unsupported and they took it down. That is how I have done other things.
I worked on the face this afternoon.
Oh ----- And HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all my mom friends! (Carrie is going to cook for me!)
I got a face.
But not Carrie! LOL. Need to name her something else I guess.
Not too bad for a first time on my own. I think my problem is picking out the fabrics. I know all the mechanics, but it is choosing the fabrics that gets me.
I don't have a whit of art training, so i really am just winging it when I do any drawing. Oh, I have a light box, but I can't shade worth anything.
So here is my progress.
This is the photo that has been somewhat posterized. I drew the colors in with a sharpie. And of course I totally disregarded the fact that my piece would be flipped. But this really doesn't matter. At some point I was having problems putting the pieces in the right place, so I flipped the page and traced the pieces on the back. Much easier.
These are the fabrics I picked out. at the quilt shop the lighting must be very different because there was actually a bit of variation in the center 3. At home, there was not so much. Made it difficult even though I had marked my pieces with a value number.
This is the gratuitous GrandDog Hugeaux photo. Although he does belong to Carrie and he was helping me.
This is the wedding dress fabric. Nice, it is dimensional.
This is the fused pieces, without the background. And with the dress fabric just placed on it.
It looks better here than in person. Hmmmm......
Here I flipped it and collaged it with the real photo.
Her jaw is too big. Maybe when I get the veil over it it will be better.
