brighten up a drawing
Hello,

I am making some painting schemes for a truck. (The drawings are not finished yet but i would like to post the question in advance so i don't have to wait later on and i can experiment before going to the real deal)

I would like to brighten them up so the customer gets the best possible (within my power and knowledge of gimp Wink)

Has anybody any ideas?

Thanks!!!

I thought it might be misunderstood but i don't know how to explain it in english.
But something like the picture with your nick in it. It gives it a little shine... bring the colours a bit to life if you will...

Maybe even give it more of a 3D look

That's because I scanned the basic picture from a (original scania-vabis) pink/orange coloured paper from the sixties. Then i selected the cooloured pieces and just deleted them. It might not be the best way but surely the fasted Tongue
I drew over a couple of lines to make al boxes seperate.

RE: brighten up a drawing
I like the shadows, very nice! So you can gladly post the writeup Smile

Is there a possibility to give it a little spark or shine or something?

The thing with the scan didn't really work in this case (I guess) because the background wasn't a smooth colour/surface as you can see here.
But i do get the message (Y) Thank you!!

I guess you did the 3d look with a square selection, quickmask en then gaussian blur then quickmask off, ctrl+i (invert selection) then paint the selection (black)

THNX!! Smile

RE: brighten up a drawing
I guess I did it Smile but it got me wandering... how can you make sure that you get the same startin and ending point for the gradient but the other way around offcourse...??
I got this problem also when i was working on some roundings in de paint schemes, it was very difficult to get the left and right side the same. I was drwaing with a path but couldn't get it to "mirror"

maybe this should be a new question... if so, let me know
