Not to throw any monkey wrenches in to any machines here, but this sounds really similar to trace bitmap in flash, and the more accurate live trace in Illustrator.

also the examples you posted seems to look like what live trace produces...

None the less I'm pretty intrigued by your claims. I'm going to try it out myself and compare the results. Who knows this program could be better.

What do you guys think about making the vector conversion part of my process?
It's up to you, it looks good to me either way. That is a great piece of software though, i'm trying it out now, the only complaint i have is if i want to use the max settings so it smooths out the right things and it leaves the other things alone it

Ok scratch that last posts, after enough messing around this software is amaaazing. It does a waaaay better job than illustrator cs3 of cs5 and considering the fact i only use custom settings on both of those apps and this still made more accuare linework than either of them... this kicks ass! (the desktop version) Thanks carriooon :)

So I don't know if anybody else has pointed this out yet, but if anybody around here has been looking into maybe getting manga studio ex4, this Friday there is a website that will let you get the full version at 90% off ($30).
More details here.
The only catch is that you have to sign up for an email subscription, but I figure if you do it today then you can get the email on friday and buy it online... I'm assuming you can opt out of the subscription at any time, like most let you do.

So yeah. Just pointing that out. Figured someone might be interested.

Getting on board an Air New Zealand flight, not planning on jumping onto Lord of the Rings related jokes, when all of a sudden I'm greeted by this flight safety video.

If any of you fellow art forum goers have a tumble you should post a link here in the lounge. I'd like the be able to keep up with yer art progress from my dashboard. And if you don't have a tumblr you should consider using it to publicize your work. It has also proved to be a wealthy source of inspiration when my noggin is feeling all empty and such. Good for portfolios, you only see content from people you follow, is a rich source for images to keep motivated. Also, newgrounds has its own tumblr, and they post caps from movies and games sometimes. neato. <3

I've been meaning to overhaul my empty shell of a tumblr for quite some time now, looks like ass at the moment.

But lets be frank here tumblr doesn't exactly need another Homestuck blog. I'll take my time with it.

Everyone has space on their user page for that, otherwise, there's the activities thread where people are welcome to post their skype, aim/msn/yahoo, gaming... and tumblr info... so there's no need to mix it in here too :P

Wow...This site is just despicable...Thanks for ruining a potentially awesome art thread. It could have been awesome, had it not been for the dick and vagina jokes. Way to ruin it, guys. Hope you're FUCKING proud of yourselves. *walks away disappointed and ashamed of all of you*

Ashamed of what? Thinking dicks/vaginas are funny at your expense? Dude chill, it's funny. I mean it's really your fault to begin with, I mean everyone drew dicks because you told them not to. Then you snapped at two moderators like you always do, and that means everyone was given the ok.

Your thread wasn't very thought provoking and eventually would have faded into obscurity. By the way isn't there a rule stating that every new thread needs starting image?

Anyway back to the reason I'm here. I was wondering if anyone here could tell me where they learned how shade/blend. I was just thinking that maybe if I followed someone's track I could possibly learn something new. I've been practicing with the little time I actually have, and was hoping someone could recall who taught them "style."

I've been googling my own resources, but seem to have a lack of motivation. My mind is bogged down by school work and my creative juices just aren't flowing like they should.

Any help would be appreciated.
