What's wrong with them? You can save them to your computer for easy access, they look nicer, and most are easier to read.


NOT! Most of them are a pain to read. And you can save one that has pictures and real text to your computer just as well. And as for looking nicer...so what? It's about content, imparting information, which seems to me should be the priority. And on top of that there is at least one tute on here, dunno whose it is, since the minute I saw it, I hit the back button, had this big nasty "anti-rip logo down the middle of it. I am not gonna waste my time even looking at something like that.

y would u hate them they are easy to follo and if there were no pics you would probably want pics......


Of course you want pics...In my case, I want my pics to be pics and my text to be text. That way, when ask my browser to enlarge the text so I can actually READ it...it works!

Furthermore...directly from the sticky post at the beginning of the forum, posted by Ali himself...

I have noticed that most of our users are submitting the tutorials as a single image. As you all know google or anyother site cannot filter the text out of an image. So submitting tutorials as single image is not good idea. I suggest you submit the tutorials as simple text so that your topic is easily index by search engines and your text goes included.


Many of us have complained about the search feature on this board. Why make it harder to use???? You can use Google...if the text is actually text!!

This is an excellent way for people to learn to draw also. I used to spend alot of time tracing (actually using artist's carbon paper) photographs. It causes you to see details you may have not noticed with just a casual glance. Before you know it, you begin to build more and more confidence until you're willing to venture out and begin creating your own characters and designs. Then you just have to build the confidence to actually post your characters and designs! This was a good idea Curly!

@clayogre:

i'm going to convert all my tuts into regular text and image files as well. they'll have a better chance of making it to the official tut board that way. :w:

I think you may have skipped over my question Curly?

I can't find an appropriate render to do this on :( Do you have any ideas of renders that look good vectored?

Thanks again for the awsome tut!

Mr T, the best looking renders to vector are real people. The result is usually cleaner and more professional. When you start off with vectors though, it's best to start off with fairly colourful anime renders; simply because they're - usually - easier.

trap's right, real person vectors look great, if done right. i've seen some awesome ones. but they require detail work and good color sense.

that's why in my tut i say DON'T start with photos unless you're really good at vectoring. :w:

Man that was long, but I'm finishing up! :w: All I need is an outline! But, something's wrong, every single time I use the srtoke tool, it just gives me an error message, and exits me out of GIMP. What's wrong?
