Hi, first of all sorry if this is posted in the wrong place.

I need help! or at the very least advice... I want to have a drawing/ painting/ something artistic made from a photograph and havent the foggiest where to start.

I want to give it to my SO as an anniversary gift. There is a particular picture of the two of us on holiday that he adores, and I think it would be the perfect gift. I have tried to draw it myself, but it just doesnt work!!  Art was never my strong point at school, I havent really tried since, and I think I need to face up to the fact that I should stick to crafting!!

I know it is the thought that counts, but I want to display it in our first home, which we are saving to buy at the moment so I want it to look good, and not like a child has drawn it (which is how my versions look!) Sad

There seem to be websites who claim they will do this for you, but the 'artists' are anonymous, and Im just not too sure about them in general

Any help/ advice would be gratefully received!! 

Thanks,
Rebecca

I've been working with embroidery on printed fabric a lot lately - you can print a photo on this fabric, and then embroider over parts of it.  Lots of interesting examples if you google  "embroidered photograph"   Smiley

This is one of my favourite tutorials on More Art Watercolor Stencil Portrait  The pieces posted in that thread turned out amazing!  I've done a few myself and was mightily impressed with the finished product.
