Hello! I have never used a laser before, so I was very excited to find Glowforge during my search for ways to take my art to a new medium. I have been doing fine art mostly, drawing with pen and pencil and such, but only as casual hobby, not my day job. I received my new Glowforge last week and I was so excited to try my own personal design to see how it would work. I have been reading the posts from the community for months now, and am so grateful to everyone here as it helped me to get started really fast!
I have never used Vector software before, and I was curious to try it out and see what I could do with my own art. I scanned a flat black pen and ink image into the software. I randomly added some black lines with the paintbrush tool to see if scoring would get deeper darks to give the image depth. I don’t know how to create using the software pen yet, which is why I used the paintbrush. It is a very simple project to what you’all do here, but it was so exciting to see my art move from paper to wood and wanted to share my joy at seeing my image on wood. I can’t wait to do more and hopefully can give back to the community someday.
