Dog Face Gift Made for Grandfather

Only about 3 weeks into owning my Glowforge and I am learning a lot!! I made a Father’s Day gift for Papa. Didn’t come out well, so I kept working. Used GIMP to manipulate Carly’s face because she is a black dog. The eyes were hard because of light in the photo. I didn’t give up. I am so excited with my finished project! I am also new to all of these very fancy programs such as GIMP and INKSCAPE. I am learning those too. 20200627_185732|375x500


That turned out great. You’re well on your way.

Thank you. I am really excited.

Dark colored dogs are the hardest ones to do because you loose all the detail, but yours looks fantastic. :grin:

I wanted to make something for a friend who has a black cat with a white smudge across its face.

I’ve been editing images for about 25yrs. I gave up after several weeks trying.

*caveat - I was limited to a few crappy cell-phone indoor low-light pics. If I could get a decent pic, I’m sure I could make it work.

That came out really well! Good job finessing the image! Isn’t it fun to learn new things, and to have such great tangible evidence of your progress?!?

Thanks. I worked hard.

I worked with the picture that was texted to me. lol I was determined to make it work. I made little adjustments and kept working till I got to what I wanted it to look like.

Thanks. I keep reminding myself that I need to give myself time to learn, not just get mad because it didn’t come out as I wanted on the first try. Time and baby steps will get me there. lol
