I used to be a viking super hero
This project started out as a really bad 1 megapixel photo from a crappy web-cam. I vectorized it in inkscape, re-rasterized it at high resolution, and did some finishing work in the gimp.
I always wanted to draw comics, but I have zero artistic ability. I wonder if I could use this technique to create a comic from live-action photographs.
Speaking of comics, check out Gone With the Blastwave. It’s pretty funny.
