Finally, got to create some more sawdust. To make a long story short I haven't been able to touch my saw much since Spring. Long over due but here is my latest attempt at a portrait. Comments, suggestions encouraged.

Derek,

Same story here. I started back sawing a month ago. I like how it turned out. In fact I think it is real good. This coming from a rookie scroller.

Looks a good likeness to the photo, Derek. Nice to see you cutting again.

Brandon, to get a picture of someone into a portrait, you need to change the picture on the computer. I am not very good at it, but you need to be able to change the picture to black and white, then change the contrasts until you get shadows. There are different types of software out there to help do this too.

There are also some people on this forum who are very good at making portraits (not me unfortunately) and may be able to help you change a picture to a pattern if you are interested. Just ask.
