944Line Art Challenge
- Oct 4, 2002A while back, there was a discussion on this list about scanning either
grayscale or color artwork and using Photoshop tools to turn the image into
really nice, clean line art. At least I think that was what we read about. I
can't seem to find those messages now. Can someone refresh my memory about
the technique involved? I have an old Victorian print that a customer wants
me to turn into line art for a letterpress plate. My thinking right now is
that the most successful method will be to simply redraw the image, tracing
over it. However, I'm stumped as to what to do with the subtle tonalities of
grays. Perhaps doing a sort of wood cut effect to render the gray tones
would be an option.
Any other suggestions? If you email me offlist, I can send you a PDF of the
scanned artwork, if that will help.
