Scribbler Too

I was playing with a new art tool,  Scribbler Too.  Try it!  It allows you to get a basic trace from a photo, then you can remove the photo and do your own shading.  If you click on the image you can see the scribble texture better.  These are of my kids, my brother and his babies, and a portrait for a friend.  Art just makes me feel good.

  3. I can’t seem to figure out how to trace the picture and do the shading, then remove the picture. Can you briefly walk me through it. Please. i really want to do something like this for my husband’s birthday.

  4. Hi Steph,
    Even without a photo there, the curser is there automatically. You just hold down the mouse and drag the curser around. If you upload an image, you can ‘trace’ the edges of the figure you see in the image. You can play around with the brush settings and colors to see what you like best. I had a hard time removing the image after I had traced, so I just drag it out of view to the sides. I preferred doing my shading after removing the image. I also composed the image by moving the pic to different spots. Hope this helps, and good luck!

  5. OK – now I can trace and understand the concept of changing the radius, etc., but how did you make the shading of the hair and skin?. It looks so real. The picture with the babies is just incredible. any other advice? so sorry to bother you.

  6. I’m glad you like playing with the tool as much as me! I find I have the most control with really “curly” and “Fuzzy” lines. Also, if you make a mistake, you can go back over it with white lines (only if you are working B&W). The web-like shading reaches from line to line, so if you have an area you know you want to shade, like hair, you can put some stray lines with a short radius first, then go in with a longer radius. i will try to capture a screen video as I do it, maybe that will help. I’d love to see what you come up with!
