just because of that matter already is discussed here, i show a modification i did some months ago.
the original is by Femur.
the translation is by me.
(i hope Femur does not consider this a copyright violation. i did it, because many of my friends neither understand any english nor have internet)
i did it wholly without any software
. - except of windows, ms outlook, scangear, ... of course.
i used the traditional way: scissors, glue, graphic marker + some rescans inbetween - stone age i guess.
and i admit, that is to see.
i didn't find enough time to retouch the edge of the cut.
i had to refresh some outlines by marker because of the loss of quality by rescanning.
and i didn't care for the background color of the title (just not the right copic-marker by the hand).
femur might forgive me the diminishing of qualitity of his excellent original for this not perfect attempt. but it was a quickshot, thought only for home use.
but i think about this:
for me, neither having appropriate software, nor having enough time by far to learn working with this software (!!!), the traditional handmade method (which i have properly learned a long time ago) seems to be an alternative to the digital way.
the result here is merely improvisated, far from any approach or attempt to professional. if i had it planned for posting here, i might have done it a little bit more carefully. (sorry, but forum were not yet that time-:-)i think
for some of the here shown recaps it should at least bring quite good results in a reasonable time to do it.
at least i am much faster with scissors and glue, than with any software i can imagine - and i know whole-lotta much goddam scrap of user-violent software out of the comic or graphic sector, which i have to struggle with at work all days!
or is that idea beyond the honor of nowadays computer-based comic-freaks? (-:
if misunderstandable: i don't want to offend anyone with this :-)
of course, this way is not suitable for mass production. then it might pay to invest the initial efforts for buying and learning software.
(((-: at least, Triona Testaferrata, Principa Transamazonica is the third reincarnation in a straight line :-)))
