Live Trace the panda

fat black and white panda

An old drawing done in my molebook (my sketchbooks name haha). Scanned in then live traced in Illustrator. 

I only just found out about the awesome Live Trace tool in Illustrator a few weeks ago courtesy of one Matthew Casburn. It turns my little drawings into vector images which i can resize to whatever size I want without losing quality - and cleans it all up at the same time. Amazing technology!

Vectorised compared to the original you can see how much smoother and cleaner it becomes. But you do lose the hand drawn qualities that i quite like. Hmm depends on the work.
