i usually uses tracing paper to get a general outline of the image that i like then i do the detail work while looking at the image i'm trying to reproduce.  after that i'll usually trace the image i just made to make a nice clear copy to turn into my iron on transfer.  i outline the back of the final image with my transfer pen and then i iron it on and start stitching.

hope this helps, it works for me,

Photoshop, or other photo manipulation programs will be your best friend for something like this.  Of course, not everyone has access to, or knows how to use such programs.

One suggestion I can think of is making a photocopy of your image, but use really high contrast.  You may have to play around with settings for contrast and brightness, but at least copies are only 7cents each!

Good luck!!
