This was a special project to create an image that never existed. A young man lost his father before he would be able to see some of his great achievements in life.
I did a collage of parts from various photos working with the customer to develop the design before handtracing the composite image. The design was then reworked to make a white version as well for going onto a dark background.
A few small pieces got lost when cutting and weeding but I reworked those and created an overlay file so a full re-cut was not necessary, just re-cut the few little bits and add to the original cut. Weeding detailed images can be a challenge, I also offer lower detailed designs for easier cut and weeding especially useful if cutting at less than full mat size.
