Well, recently I found out what does 'scanning' actually mean (until then I thought it had something to do with a scanner), I read a few tutorials and tried it myself. So here goes my first attempt to do a scan:

Well, in fact it's the second scan I made, but the first one is very bumpy to publish. With this one I finally learnt how to use bezier curves to create smooth lines.

As long as this is my first scan, any comments/suggestions/etc will be very appreciated. Also I hope it's OK to post it here since I don't want to start a new thread for my work (maybe later).

Wow, that's excellent for a first (second  tongue ) scan. What program did you make it in, just out of curiousity.

Thanks. Outline is done in CorelDRAW 9, then it's filled in MSPaint  smile (that's the basic painting program that ships with Windows  smile) and finally it's shrunk with Irfan View to achieve the antialiasing effect. But I'm not very happy with CD9, I hope to find some program that is easier to control...

That scans awsome, especialy for a first attempt. Impressive.  smile

What does scanning actualy mean, I've never realy understood it. What tutorials did you use? Do you know where I can get a free trial with CorelDraw 9 or anything to use for scanning. I want to give it a shot.

What tutorials did I use? Well, I know no urls, but I read some threads about it here at PEEL as well as the tutorial at GFF's Aslate's site (The Fry Hole, if I'm not mistaken).

Scanning (in this context, of course) means retracing some original picture so as to create a new picture, usually in better quality, with shapes simmilar to the original picture. Usually (if not always) a framegrab is used as the original picture.

CorelDRAW trial's available at  www.corel.com . I don't know the version available there though, mine is older. But as far as I know, people use Paint Shop Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia Flash and such. I find outlining in CD a bit difficult, especially in a manner of connecting outlines, but I'm pretty sure it's because I cannot control the program properly   smile.

Yeah that'll be cool, but you are mistaken.
The Fry Hole is aslate's site.
I only own my crappy picture-webspace ( http://www.k-hausmann.de/futurama  ).

The scan you did is fantastic! In addition to the fact fact that it is only your second makes it one even better than fantastic!

You can get trial versions of PSP8 (JASC) and Photoshop (Adobe) they're limited to 30 or 60 days.

I use PSP8 and searched for "Bezier PSP8" on google for a little workshop how bezier-lines work in PSP. For good scan-art you should resize the original picture to at least 5 times as big as the original size, and turn off Antialiasing of the pen tool.

Edit: When I'm already here in this thread I also can post a scan of me:


I did it some time ago.

What's this? Pimping old scans are we? Gladly.      tongue


1024x768
1280x960
1600x1200

I use Flash to do most of it (tracing and filling with colors) then export it as a .bmp. Then I open the .bmp in PSP to save it again (usually as a 24-bit .png for wallpapers, And 8 bit .png for smaller transparent scans (provided that I didn't use gradients). Sometimes I resize too. Flash is a little tricky to get the file size I want, so that's why I export in PSP.

Also GFF, I like how you blur thier eyes.      smile

Edit: Curses Imageshack, you're risking my friendship with you!

Edit2: Okay, they should work now.

Well, I was mistaken, sorry to both of you guys. I was confused by GFF always welcoming new PEELers with his fancy picture and a link to the Official FAQ which leads to TFH, so I got this impression that he has something to do with the site (by the way I never got this fancy welcoming    cry )

Anyway, great scan GFF! It's impossible not to say the catchphrase so cute      smile. As for Kyle, I'm currently unable to view it      frown. Must be some connection problems.

If you are working in a vector environment, it doesn't matter how big it is. You can create a wall-size poster if you want, why not?

Aww...welcome to the club Xerxes, I didn't get a welcome either    frown
(Maybe that is why I'm that friendly to new members now.    hmpf )

May I officially welcome you now:



   laff
_____________________________ _
Yeah that scan is really cute, that's why I chose that little Fry as my new avatar.

I'm workin with vector-graphics in PSP.
The resizeing is not only for the tracing, but also for the coloring. If you trace it a much bigger size and then resize it down again it gets a slightly blur effect, making the lines and colors much smoother than a picture which is done in 1:1 scale.

The problem with PSP is that the filling colors don't work with vector-graphics.

Oh, I just got why I didn't welcome you: You joined two months earlier than me    wink

LOL   laff Thanks. I knew this was gonna happen.

I may have joined two months before you, but that doesn't change the fact that I did no posts back then (just lurking) and started participating just a month ago or so (that should explain why I am still a crustacean at this point).

And to the resizing: when I was exporting from CD to MSPaint in order to fill it, the image was so big (1700x3000 or so) that it slowed down my computer for several minutes   smile.

Oh, you use that as an avatar? I haven't noticed until being told  smile.

BTW, what's the thread you can upload avatars in?

In this thread (now it is "Oh, I have poison avy") you can request an avatar to be uploaded as you custom.
If you would like to have an avatar that only you'll have, post it there with upload to custom below (or mail it to me, since I'm the one collecting them).
It should be a .gif with exact 64x64 pixels and transparent. Also it should not be animated and below 3.4 kb.

As I said, I collect them, I rename it to your profile number (in your case it is 00004229) and add it to a zip file, which SlimmyCGEF (one of the admins) pick up and upload every now and then.

Yes, that's why I work with paths in Photoshop. I draw the bezier curve and apply a brush/pencil to it. Then I simply colour in the areas. The disadvantage is that you have to work with a colossal bitmap at all times, so a decent amount of memory is required.

Case in point, the scan I made for the original scan contest ended up as a 8-layer, 8000x6000 pixel image at the end. Even with 1 GB RAM it nearly killed my computer. Don't ask me why I work with scans that large, though.  tongue

That's why I switched to Flash, it's much easier to fill. Resizing my scans to 500+ percent wasn't good for my poor 256mb RAM.

How'd I do the sky? I'm glad you asked this question, Kyle  smile. For as you can see, I'm a bit of an amateur programmer. And about half a year ago, I was experimenting with OpenGL and Lua and I created something I call "particle graphics script interpreter". While I was playing with it, I created some animations like "burning fire" and "fountain", including this "Valentine nebula". So the sky is basically a screenshot from that program  tongue.

As long as it is just a screenshot, there's no problem using Paint. I just copy'n'pasted the image over the shot using transparency feature  smile.

Exactly my thoughts ...

Wait. Venus asked that already ...  roll eyes

Anyway ... good to hear from you again, Marcus. I've nearly thought that you are disappeared in the internet ...
