Operative word in the title - "Tries"

Hey guys, i've been making a lot of avatars recently... so i thought i might try a 'real' scan. So here's what it came out like


As you can see its pretty crappy and pixelated... but if you zoom out, it actually looks pretty good... im still fine tuning it, but here it is anyway... im thinking of putting the VW van in the background   :D but we'll see how we do with this first... Hope you like it!

EDIT : Aw crap... did i stretch the Topic bar in the thread list....?  :(

Lines are a little bumpy, but good for a first scan.  I love that episode and that scene!  :)

Not bad for a first try, not bad at all. Way better than what I could come up with back then. Keep them coming.  :)

What programs do you use? The more you blow up the framegrab in programs such as PSP or Photoshop before tracing the less pixelated it'll look once it's shrunk down.

Other than that Flash is excellent for avoiding pixelation, at least in my experience.

They are showing up as red crosses now. So are my villagephotos.com pictures, I think you may have gone over the daily limit. Like I did. Or maybe I did, and that also means I can't see yours. I don't know!

Well if that's the case, it should be OK tomorrow... probably shouldn't be hotlinking a pic with a bandwidth limit.
Sorry about that guys  :)

*Bump* Excuse for double posting

I know the popcorn looks crappy but it was a hard grab to scan.. it came from this dark dank grab http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-9/358422/blah.gif  which incidentally is why his hair looks crappy (i had to draw it myself  :) )

You have to enlarge it more.
I usually use 2800 width and 2200 height.
They'd come out smoother.
Also if you canīt see any detail because of darkness light up your monitor.
I always use that.

Because i'm colour blind... and the grab was dodgy... I must've hit an odd coloured pixel with the grabber, i'll patch that up tomorrow but it's too late now.
Thanks Bobby

EDIT : Actually i think its done now... unless his face was green too...
I hate being colour blind...
Is the green hand in the avatar version of this very noticeable? (in Here)

Anyone want to request a scan?
Just don't make it too hard, if you want i might do a compilation thing, like the hippy and van thing... If you're not sure what's too hard, ask anyway, i'll see what i can do. I will probably also making avys out of them if it's possible too.
If i get lots of requests i will just choose which ones I want to do  :p . If i get no requests i'm thinking about doing a bunch of Beelzebot scans.

Also it's probably worth pointing out the lines shouldn't be crappy and jagged this time.

Ask away!

I like seeing the Bender's steal from each other, but I always wonder did one have more money than the other because of a coin flip? Another question never to be answered

Hey people!
I've decided to make a "Time keeps on slipping" compilation banner thing, might be done tonight... but we'll see... But I need some help, I need a DVD Quality framegrab of the Globetrotters lined up in the V shape... If i can get that soon, I will be able to at least get a preview done by tonight.
Thanks a bundle for any help

Thanks a bundle buddy.

As for the compilation... i'll be lucky to finish it tonight... my PC doesn't like working with four 20mb files at once...

Hey SixByNine mind if i get another grab off you?
Sorry about this, but i've decided to go for a wallpaper instead of a banner, and i need a good grab of "Madison Cube Garden" for the background.

It's up to you though, the grab is about 4 minutes through Time keeps on slippin'
Thanks a bundle... again


EDIT : Just before i go to bed, i'll leave some of the scans i've done for this so far, these are unedited (Except being converted to Jpeg), extremely large (3200x2400) and will take a while to download, but regardless... http://members.lycos.co.uk/sleek85/Scans/BubblegumMeanStareScan.JPG  (225kb) http://members.lycos.co.uk/sleek85/Scans/ProfMeanStareScan.JPG  (293kb) http://members.lycos.co.uk/sleek85/Scans/ProfTeamScan.JPG  (541kb)

You have to resize these, or it will look like it was done by a blindfolded monkey with a pencil in it's teeth.

And SixByNine, You are a legend, thanks for both of the grabs   :D

Expect at least a preview tomorrow people!
