    The best way to cartoonize an image

    I have a fark photoshop contest that got greenlit (WHOOHOO!!!) and I'm trying to get a decent entry this time. I have an image of a head and I want to turn it into a cartoon image for a later cut and paste job.

    I'm using The GIMP. Any suggestions?

    Cartoon, as in like a cariacture (sp?)?

    If gimp supports multiple layers, you could make a new layer overtop the bg, and loosely trace the face + features. Then sorta distort/skew the parts that would make it most recognizable. Like, if it had really beady eyes, you could shrink them down and make it all squinty, add some shadowing to make it look kinda evil.

    The GIMP has layers. I thought about that. Elsewhere I was told about Inkscape and I might try that. What I'm doing is taking the head of Bob from the Enzyte commercials and putting him on a Big Johnson t-shirt. That's the kind of cartooning I'm after.

    Can't you just use some sort of Colored Pencil or Ink Pen filter on it?

    Gimp's fine for artsy stuff, but if you want to go into serious photomanipulation, PS is the only way to go.

    Mine's not pirated. I got it in Malaysia for 10 bucks. =X

    Which actually IS pirated, but makes me feel inexplicably better.

    Yeah, ninjas are too hygienic for "butt-ninja" to work.

    Got to stay classic, don't you think? Too bad this forum does not support chyrillic (sp?), would've been style points.
