Large Stencil wave UNFINISHED by l1vethedream Large Stencil wave UNFINISHED by l1vethedream
So I was workong on this massive stencil on a massive canvas- and I got bored of it and have left it unfinished.

It actually looks ok at a distance but if you look at it closer you'll notice that it doesn't align very well at all- so that left me disheartened- plus there are lots of differnt layers- 3 or 4? I think at the time I wasn't used to workong on/with stencils that large.

The image is from The Great Wave Katsushika Hokusai ...

I wouldn't have thought there were alignment mistakes at all. Even unfinished it looks wonderful.

Aww your too kind! I think I'm too critical of this and decided to cut my loses.

I'm actually really struggling on a multiple layer stencil right now, it's of my daughter I've spent bout 7 hours working on it and it's turned out awful! Not sure where to go with it.

Aw man I can't really help you there. I still haven't yet had the guts to try a portrait. Figuring out the lighting and everything! Maybe you could simplify it somehow? Try again with fewer layers? Good luck, I'm sure you'll figure it out and it'll be great!:)

No worries, thanks for your advice though. Normally I print off an image and break it down into layers myself but that didn't turn out so well so think I may use photshop to break it into layers for me... I was just a bit gutted because its a present for my ex and itsd of our daughter so it needs to be good, you know?
