I recently received a commission for this stitched Riker portrait. For you non-nerds, he is a character from "Star Trek" (The Next Generation, not the original series). I filled in the beard and hair with acrylic paint, but now that I know how to properly crayon tint (thanks to the Godzilla post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433844.0 ) that kind of changes how I approach filling in spaces in my embroidery.

In case anyone wants to stitch him up, I am including a copy of my original sketch. You can just right-click, save it to your computer, and print it out in the size you want. I trace my sketches onto fabric using a pilot frixion pen, since it irons out easily. I don't have a fancy light box, but I fashioned one with a photo frame (with the back removed - it's just the glass inside the frame) and a desk lamp. DIY or die!

Now get geeked out and stitch this up form someone you love.
