    Default Help Converting a photo to a image that can be carved

    Struggling to get this done and look correct. Can someone convert this to a pattern that would carve correctly? Let me know.

    Thx

    I worked on it a bit but the quality is terrible. If you could find something better.

    Here is the original. I think this web site is dropping down the quality. I've put it in a zip file.

    Kelsky, I'm afraid I won't be able to do any better even with the original one. Hope someone will take over from here.
    Sorry my inbox was full!

    Kelsky, I needed a break from trying to learn how to model flowers so I gave it a try as well.

    For some reason this one gave me fits and its still not very good either but I hope it can work for you. I tried several variations and this is the best I can do without spending a full day playing at optimization and building a better model. This is set at .5 depth and 100 height.

    Good luck.

    This is not an easy task. Importing images to make into patterns is hard even with a high quality image. This is not from looking at it. Whether it started that way or uploaded that way...it takes some practice, patience, and skill to make this into a good carving pattern. The tools are there. People are learning. Kudos to those that make the effort. You will only get better.

    OP...did you look in the PatternDepot for an already made pattern? Or the pattern sharing file (wish I had easier access to the link). Remember it assigns depth based on gray scale. The highlights in this image makes it difficult. Find a better starting point, if able. Even outline or silhouette is better.
