Hi. I'd like to make a stencil for a t-shirt out of this picture:


Unfortunately I seem to keep failing in the saturation removing and I never have the correct lines of cutting. I read almost all the tutorials here on crafster but still can't understand how to make it in a good way.

About the image size.. for a M size t-shirt I plan to stencil it in the front center of the tee. how big do you recommend the image to be?

can someone help me to make the picture with right saturation to be cut and tell me which is the best size? If you have Photoshop and you are expert in stenciling would be very nice if you can help, Im in a dorm like computer and can't install anything besides the crappy default image program already on pc.

sorry for all those questions, it's clear Im a newbie in stenciling... be patient. I'm sure I'll learn from you all Smiley

thanks for help in advance.

I'm from Italy, please be nice with me if my spelling isn't correct Smiley

after a two minute doodle, I come up with this:

It's not perfect at all, but maybe you can work from there? You will have to enlarge it quite a bit, though to fit onto a men's shirt.

Thanks a lot kianee!
Looks much better than the one I attempted to make... I'll try to make something starting with this one  Smiley for sure I'll correct the size cause it will go in a M man size t-shirt.

if you have other hints are more than welcomed  Wink  Cheesy
