    Does anyone recommend someone for converting a car in a photo to vinyl cut ready?

    vector doctor is not an option, tried that already...too much detail involved.

    Vecotorize (Corel Trace or whatever) and then lots of cleaning / node smoothing, editing. I'm guessing, without seeing.

    It is a photo of a car. In other words he wanted it converted from a photo into line art. I get requests like these all the time but it is far too subjective and like I told him, if you were to send this to 10 different people you would get 10 different versions as opposed to tracing clipart, logos, lineart in which there is no question as to how it should look

    If there is anyone on here that does this kind of work, I would be happy to refer them to you. I would like to see before and after samples

    There was someone on here that drew up very realistic sprint cars. Incredibly detailed and nice work. Not sure what he would charge but then again, is this too much detail? Are my customers expecting a $20 redraw when it could easily run in the hundreds for a high end illustration?

    How long do you expect it would take someone to do it? What are you willing to pay/// or are you looking for an "easy button"?

    There's a member named Whit who does outrageously good line art drawings from photos. You might want to contact him for a drawing and then have Eric vectorize it for you.

    Whit is one of our independent artists at ExpressClipart.com. Here's a link to some of his art work.
