Stencil Opinion

Postby justanotherguy on Tue Feb 28, 2012 6:54 pm

I'm not sure how kindly you all talk to this, but im attempting to blend two faces from opposite sides of the spectrum in a stencil. If you could offer any advice or honest opinions that'd be amazing. I'll take all the flaming you can throw at me as well.

Thanks

EDIT* take in mind this is just the first attempt at it without any serious time put into editing it.

First, You didn't need to make a new thread for this, there's a stencil thread you could have posted the same thing in.
Second, Advice, Clean it up, and make the two faces connect. so they look like one face( if that's what you're trying to do)
And a question. Is that Houdini and gandhi?

i think you need more detail. you want ppl to quickly identify the face in a stencil, not sit there staring at it trying to figure out why you melded al capone and orville redenbacher

my apologies for not posting in the correct thread apparently. I didn't notice that there had already been one. But yes, i was trying to mold them together into one smoothly, but ahhh, its ghandi haha. I'll try to add a few more layers to it and clean up the lower half which seems to be the biggest issue. It looks just like a blob rather than any sort of facial feature

I feel like the idea is there, but not put together well enough to be understood.
