This was a project of mine, during the last week...the hard part is finding a suitable painting:
Then, another hard part is drawing what you want to scale! (Note: there are a couple of different ways to do this...by hand, or complete a drawing you really like, then re-size it on a photocopier or computer.)
Then, another hard part is scanning it and putting it into Photoshop, so you can have a rough draft, and decide exactly on your placement...(and erase what you don't need):
From there on in, the rest is simple....not really, this was another hard part.
But at last, you have a finished work, suitable for a gilded frame...oh wait, it came with one! Even better!my first attempt, Thrift-Store Gamera.
