Tutorial by BezerroBizarro Tutorial by BezerroBizarro
Hi!

A long time ago somone asked me to post a tutorial about how I work. Here it is!
I start with a sketch, then I ink it.
After scanning in low resolution, I turn it into hard pixels and transform it in vectors.
From vectos, I export it as a high resolution image, which is ready for colors.
That's how I clean little useless spots and make the traces smooth. That also allows me to make poster size images from little doodles.
The programs I use are Gimp and Inkscape. They're light, easy to find and for free.
If you know an easier way to do it, please tell me. :)

Hope you like it!
Cheers!

Thanks for the tutorial!
I found that the best looking lines for my work is with the brightness cutoff with a threshold of .800

1 - Use Inkscape to open the gif file.
2 - Click on the gif image to select it.
3 - Click on Path>Trace Bitmap.
4 - Set up your preferences and click OK.
A vector image will be formed over the pixelated image.

Tip: Move the vector image a little and you will see the gif image in a layer under it. For better results, delete the gif image when the vector image is done.

It usually happens when we forget to select the gif image.
You must click on the gif image before clicking Path>Trace Bitmap>OK.
If it still doesn't work, I think that there must be a problem with your program or something.

Thanks for the tutorial. In step 3 can you please explain more on how exactly you transform the pixelated lines to vector lines. What options do you use/short cuts? I'm new to Inkscape.
