Creative Portraits: The Face

Well, since "Hunk 1" is flying like a rock, here's another female to work on. Thanks to member Panpan for pointing me to this pic he found via google search.

300 ppi version here:

Have fun.

well, i had to have a go at this one. just too many oddball, experimental steps to explain. not sure it will come out right either. i probably shld have reset my gamma before doing this.

I added mine last night but I then I looked at the forum and thought I needed to make a drawing or something. I tried to add it today and even changed the name but it keeps saying I have already added the photo. Guess I only got one chance?

Just go to www.panopticum.com. Click on "products." Scroll down to Engraver.

It's gonna be fine once I get all the adjustments figured out.

I've only experienced this when trying to upload the exact same image as I had uploaded elsewhere, regardless of file name.

Try this:
* Click "User CP" (top/left)
* Left side of screen down about 1/2-way: Under "Miscellaneous," click "Attachments." See if you by chance you uploaded the sketch version elsewhere.

If this isn't it, open your sketch version and change its width, height or resolution just slightly, save and then try uploading it again.
