  • Hand drawn to the computer

    Hi everyone. Looking for a different way to do something. I love drawing, sketching, doodling and being able to use something that I have done on a business card or poster. What is the best way to take pencil sketches or pen drawings and convert them for use on the computer? I have my own methods which normally involve fine tuning Illustrator trace, but I still loose that hand drawn feel. What are have you all done to accomplish this? Love to read responses and read through links or videos.

    Cheers,

    Are able to post a sample of the kinds of drawings you start with?

    I usually use live trace if I want vector but to keep the hand drawn feel. But for something with shading etc, it might be best to keep and clean up the original bitmap scan.

      Depending on the complexity, I scan in the drawing, then use my wacom pen and tablet to redraw it in vectors using my original drawing beneath as a guide.

        This is about what I do, depending on what I'm doing.

          I've always had a side business doing work for various clients, but I've never bitten the bullet and taken the chance of doing it full-time. Honestly, I'm a little envious of you. Good luck!

          Have you tried a web search for
          Custom printed folder with stepped inserts?

          I don't ever use them so I can't offer any advice on who to use.
