Yehat vector images

Post by chenjesummrnmhrm » Sat May 11, 2013 8:09 am

I was going to make a vector image of this image, for a t-shirt.

I thought I should ask you guys if someone had done this before I did it. Has anyone done this before?

Based on the lack of response, id say probably not, I know I haven't personally, that said if you got illustrator, live paint might be able to do a half decent job of vectorizing it for you?

I can do just what Scott said for you if you like. Do you have any limitations in terms of # of colors?
Edit: any idea where I can get a higher res version of that?

there's this:

But you'd have to check with dczanik that you can use it.

This is what the image looks like as a 24 color vector graphic. We can go as many colors as you like. If you are just looking for scalability we can go to thousands of colors and have a near match to the original.

If you can get dczanik's ok (have him post it here) let me know how many colors and I will send it to you as an SVG.

Oh, hi :)

The t-shirt site I was gonna order from (customink.com) had designs limited to 3 colors, but you can now get up to 8. But I sort of figured it out already.

I didn't think anyone was going to respond to this post, and I found some vector programs and worked on getting it down to 3 colors, and then forgot about it.
You can see it if you want.

I used Inkscape to get it to vector, and Gimp for editing.

PS: thanks for that high res. I will probably use it (in a few months) when I can do this.

How is that 3 colors? With dithering or something?

why not just trace it with pencil on semi-transparent paper and then scanning that paper and digitally altering it?

I don't know. I wanted to get it done by a professional, but I ended up drawing it out with a permanent marker. I think I did a pretty good job.
