Oh my dear god. This blows my mind. Now if I ever find myself getting lazy and wanting to cut corners, I'll think of this as an example of something done perfectly.  Way to go!

3  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: Board not loading when certain ad is up on: September 03, 2009 05:06:33 AM
Thanks for posting this message regarding pages not loading.  It was the first thing I came across after experiencing the same thing.  I gotta hand it to you on your quick and clever detective work.  Really, thanks!

Modified==>  Ok, I guess I'll wait till this is fixed.  It took 16 refresh attempts (PF5 key) to display a page.  Agony.

Could this be the sofa cover you're looking for? Your picture reminded me of something I had seen before on the Threads site.  Here's the link:

I love this bracelet! I especially dig the way you cut each one keeping that pixelated look.  Did you print them or draw them by hand?  They look great!!
(BTW you've just inspired me to start working on a Mega Man bracelet I wanted to do, but forgot all about.)

Mindblowingly beautiful and inspiring! What a crazy/awesome idea. This rocks big time. Wonderful job!

Really impressive. Great image, and so subtle in shading.  Can you give me a real broad idea of how you designed it?  Special software?  Graph paper? I just wouldn't know where to start.  Thanks for sharing this!
8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Simple three color portraits on: June 22, 2009 08:53:43 PM
Here are a few portraits of my handsome son that I painted on 7x9 inch canvases from the Dollar Tree. Each is done with just three colors using acrylics I had on hand (FolkArt, Ceramcoat, etc.) 
I love the way they turned out.  All credit goes to the web site http://obamiconme.pastemagazine.com/
where you can upload a picture and create an OBAMA HOPE poster type image.

The original that I uploaded to http://obamiconme.pastemagazine.com

The image that was created.

Rather than posting it to the site's gallery, which is an option, I did a screen capture using Paint Shop Pro, and saved the image as a gif file.

In Paint Shop Pro, I modified the image to just include just the outlines of the color boundaries so that I could print it.  Here it sort of looks like a paint-by-number picture.

I printed the image to the size of my canvas, in this case 7x9.  To transfer the image to the canvas, I'm strictly old school.  On the back of the printout, I used a pencil to lay on some graphite, taped the printout to the canvas right side up and traced the lines between the color boundaries. This makes sense, doesn't it?

After the image was traced/transferred, the printout was used as a reference to determine what color goes where.

WIP - Two of the three colors painted

Finished purple portrait

...Do happen to still have the like to that photo? (the one with all those Enid Blyton illustrations on it.) 

Thanks so much for your comments!  Yes, the picture is still available at this really great site:
