Embird Sfumato Tutorials

In this Course "Learn how to create an African Leopard in Embird Sfumato" we will create a Sfumato design for machine embroidery with Embird Embroidery Digitizing Software. Digitize an embroidery design in Sfumato stitch with Embird. Embird Sfumato Tutorials, David Kruiper Portrait Study

  • Embird Sfumato allows easy and fast creation of multicolored portraits, landscapes, still lives and other designs from photos.
  • Student imports photo into the background of the working area and then draws Sfumato objects on top of the photo.
  • Sfumato objects have vector boundaries that are automatically filled with stitches. Photo-realistic effect is achieved with variable density of the thread flow.
  • Objects are filled with stitches so that thread forms looser or heavier meanders to create shading effects while fabric shows through the stitches. In general, the loose meanders are used on low density areas.
  • Special controls and paramaters are available to tune density and colors of Sfumato object.
  • Additional features like openings, carvings and color mask can be applied to achieve required stitch layout and texture.
  • Each Sfumato object can have 1-5 shades of its 'basic color' or user-defined shades. Chosing proper number of separate objects and proper number of shades within each object allows to achieve various coloring effects.
  • We will use a photo of an African Leopard in a Tree which you can download in the Conclusion section resources to play along on your pc
