Another feeble attempt at converting a photo to a pattern. Hopefully I will keep learning as I do more conversions.

Hey Buzz,
Great job, the likeness is spot on, I'm sure she will love it.

G'day Buzz,
That ain't to shabby mate.
I think you did good and you can definitely see who the cutting is of.

Good job Buzz, I've been scrolling for some time now and still cant get a decent portrait pattern. Must be a mental block or something.

But Im not giving up. Working on one of my Granddaughter now. Keep up the good work.

I'd say the pattern is much better than you give it credit for. Looks GREAT to me. The cutting pretty darned good too!!! Good on 'ya Buzz ... honestly, it looks like you've got a pretty good handle on "the process of conversion". You've cropped it well, framed her face nicely and preserved all the details that identify her as who she is. Can't ask for more than that. Most certainly a good likeness of her ... and that's the definition of a portrait. You win on this one!

Andy
