No matter how many posts I read on how to convert a picture into a stencil, I can't get it right.

So I was hoping that a Stencilling expert could help me turn this into a stencil? Please?



Thanks in advance!

I tried that, but it still came out non-stencil-looking. Sad

its far from good looking but its the best that i could do...thats a hard image to make a stencil out of because it doesnt have good definition...the cats colors arent very contrasting...

hope you like it!

I messed around with the photo,  but the face seems to come out really dark, or almost non existent. It has a lot to do with working from such a low-resolution copy of the image. Even though "pixels" kind of get lost in stencils, detail and contrast levels sometimes get taken with it
