Hi Ken
Welcome to the friendliest forum on the net. You picked the right place to ask questions about scroll sawing.
Sounds like you are interested in cutting a portrait. If you are want to design your own pattern, you can draw it freehand or use software. There are several programs that you can use like Photoshop, Coyote, and Gimp. Take a look here for info on doing your own designs: Scroll Saw Design Tutorials - Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Message Board

We also have a number of terrific designers here who love to do patterns for forum members. Feel free to upload your photo (be sure to size it no bigger than 780x780).

Once again, welcome!
The Journey is the Reward
