how do you make a kids colouring picture?


Recommended Posts

hi everyone, i was hoping somebody could give me some tips on how to make a kids colouring book ie. take a picture of my car (or anything else for that matter) and remove all colours etc but just leave the main outlines of the car so i can print it off and let the kids have some fun.

any help is much appreciated.

cheers

Try effects>stylize>outline

Run outline with line thickness at what you want, but intensity at 100

run curves with one point at 245,0.

Does that help?

Nice to see that Paint.net is being used for childrens endless entertainment :)

EDIT: OH wait scratch that, use the pencil sketch plugin found under the artistic effects menu

thanks for the help guys. the pencil sketch and stylize/outline worked a treat. not sure about the curves thing, it went a bit mental when i done it lol. should keep my little girl entertained for a while (well at least until the ink runs out on my printer)

cheers

edit- just an after thought but is it possible to go more extreme with the effect? this is what i have so far-

i think it might be something in the shading i need to do but i lose my outlines at the same time. again thanks for any help you give

not sure what you mean. maybe try running toon plug in. on what you have so far. That's one of Bolt Baits plug ins from aways back. It gets it down to almost just lines, but there is quite a bit of shading in the bottom asphalt area. since its just for coloring in, I run a quick eraser over the asphalt area and drop in a white layer underneath your picture to take care of those bits.

this is what I got after running toon on the above picture and then doing a real quick swipe out with the eraser for the asphalt. if you wanted to do up properly you'd take a bit more time and care.
