I have to do my tracing-technique in Illustrator!! Time & consuming are two words that echo through my mind!
dude, i love this. i started one with christos the redeemer and buddha, but haven't done anything else. similar technique. but what is this "selected tools" and does it allow the traced/transparent to stay on top while fontstructing? congrats. this is cool :)
what you see in the sample is first of all a picture from the net (marilyn)in a window of reduced size in front of a black desktop.
As a layer above it i got the FS window opened with a transparency of 50%. it's NOT the marilyn pic that is transparent, so all the FS stuff stays on top anyway :)
the prog is simply called "tranparent windows" and free, i guess. the cool thing about this technique is: if your browser automatically fits shown pictures to the window size, you can easily adjust the height of the picture, to make it suitable to the FS grid...
Fantastic, kix. Especially the details on the Statue of Liberty and Napoleon. Thanks for citing the utility. I didn't even want to ask how you did it, because it would make me spend more time on FontStruct than I should be.
This is so cool! Yoda approves!
I like yoda :D
kix, the technique illustrated here is mind-blowing and revolutionizes Pixel Art tracing using FS! Hands down one of the most phenomenally creative uses of FS to day! ^_^
Unusual and fun, Basmachi is a high-contrast, modular script with a Central-Asian flavour.
