1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Stencil from a photo with lots of little bits - what do I do to avoid breakdown? on: July 31, 2009 09:45:54 PM
Hiya! So I just realised that I have just about everything in my house for stenciling, so I am really excited to try it.

I have been itching for a biggie shirt, so I googled some photos of his and played around with this tut on StencilRevolution. I came up with this awesome bit of awesome:

I can't post pics yet - sorry! But I'll fix it when I can: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v191/xopiatex/Stencilry/PeekinBiggie.jpg

I wanna put that at the bottom of a shirt - I just love the idea of him peeking out from the bottom~! I have some OCD thing against photos that cut off anything from a person's face right in the middle of the shirt - to me it looks so unprofessional! Like there's a frame missing or something, you know?

But, I don't know how apparent it is in the photo, there are lots of little bits that I think I'd spend aeons cutting out. I even got tired of getting rid of the white in between, so you see a few scraggly bits where the gray layer should show through but doesn't. While they make a cool gradient effect, is it worth it? Am I missing a lot of information if I just don't cut them out? I wanna get into it asap, but I also wanna do a good job. What would you guys do?

Thanks for the help, you guys are so inspiring.

Hello all you artists, creators, and all-around interetsing people!

This weekend is Franklin & Marhsall College's 4th annual anime and (board and video and dice) gaming convention, DIPLOCON! And I encourage you all to register and come on over if you can. I know it's short notice, but I didn't want to let the opportunity to bring some of you intensely creative people over slip by!

For those of you interested, we have an artist's alley for people who draw, and a vendors area for anyone willing to sell just about anything they want, whether it be things they've made, etc.

Not to mention there'll be tons of stuff for everyone to do, like anime screenings, video game tournaments ( DDR, Halo 3, Super Smash Brothers, etc), board game tournaments (Munchkin), one-shot D&D RPGS, and panel discussions with Michael Poe, creator of ErrantStory.com!

Please stop by our website for more information:

Please please come! I'd love to see some craftster representation on there, despite not being a member for long and lurking for most of my short time here!
