Help with a sketch

Recommended Posts

I am brand new to Paint.net, and nearly as new to any in depth image software. I used Photoshop a couple of times and know that I found out how to do the same couple of things I am looking to do, but that was years ago. I have already searched the forums to try and find what I need to do, but haven't found anything. It is entirely possible I missed something already posted about this, and I apologize if that is the case.

I have a pencil sketch that I need to submit for a t-shirt design. I need to clean up the little mistake lines, but that seems like it should just be the eraser. The harder part is I want to trace all of the lines with a thicker, black line so none of the pencil shows. The image also has eyes, which I would also like to fill with black. I will attach it so you can see.

Again, sorry if I glossed over a tutorial or something that would have helped, but I really did search and didn't find anything that seemed relevant.

Thank you,

Here is some help...

First, run this CodeLab script:

#region UICode
byte Amount1 = 0; // [1] Delete|White|Black 

private UnaryPixelOps.Desaturate desaturateOp =
new UnaryPixelOps.Desaturate();

void Render(Surface dst, Surface src, Rectangle rect)
  ColorBgra CurrentPixel;
  for (int y = rect.Top; y < rect.Bottom; y++)
     for (int x = rect.Left; x < rect.Right; x++)
        CurrentPixel = desaturateOp.Apply(src[x,y]);
           case 0: // White chosen
              CurrentPixel.A = (byte)(255-CurrentPixel.R);
              CurrentPixel.R = 0;
              CurrentPixel.G = 0;
              CurrentPixel.B = 0;
           case 1: // Black chosen
              CurrentPixel.A = CurrentPixel.R;
              CurrentPixel.R = 255;
              CurrentPixel.G = 255;
              CurrentPixel.B = 255;
        dst[x,y] = CurrentPixel;

This will remove all the white pixels.

Next run the "Effects > Object > Outline Object" plugin from my plugin pack using the following settings: Radius 5, Strength: 9

Finally, add a new layer, fill it with white, place it under your drawing, and flatten the image.

Hope this helps.

The result should look like this:


Of course, you'll still have to clean it up. But, that should get you most of the way there.
