Going toon.. (not yet anime)

I’ve been thinking of going cartoon since long long time. I hit nicu’s blog, and the urge became stronger.

It looked so easy on nicu’s blog with inkscape, but I used Gimp to create my all new toon hackergotchi.
Boy it was tough and fun!

This is the first trial. More improvements ( Dracula teeth, fiery eyes, evil skin..) to follow soon. 🙂

  2. Yeah, the basics are the same… have you painted with a brush or used vectors?

    For an anime version you have to to a lot of additional work, is not enough to follow the photo, some parts of the face have to be changed (starting with the eyes).

    The pixelated look was intentional?

  3. >have you painted with a brush or used vectors?

    I don’t know how to work vectors on gimp yet.
    I used fill, brush,pencil, gradients on multiple layers naming them face, darkareas, shine, shadow, horns. The eye glasses are again different layer so it’s easy to go without them with just a click.
    Ah, whom am I telling these! To the expert nicu 🙂

    Yep, may be I need to slim down myself for the anime version. 😛 and also get a new hairstyle – naruto or vegeta?

    >The pixelated look was intentional?

    Nope, I used a low resolution pic (taken from 0.3MP cellphone cam). I didn’t really use the calligraphic brush like you did in inkscape. Instead I drew paths and used stroke with pencil. My bad!
