How do I make and object one solid color?
I'm working on a design for a local website's t-shirt contest and I would like to make the motorcycle pictured a solid color. I can't figure out how to do it while keeping some of its definition. It needs to be one solid color and cant have too much shading for screen printing purposes. The smoke seems to be what is throwing me off so much.

The first image is the picture I would like to use (I already trimmed the background out as you can see). The second image is an example of what it needs to look like (last years design) I want to make it white against a black background, because the shirts will be black. Then maybe a red outline or something, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks all!

Thanks Ofnuts! For some reason I kept blurring the image and that must have been what was throwing me off. I thought it would mellow out the definition with out making it too cartoon-ish, but this worked really well. I never used the edge detect either.

Any ideas what I could do with the smoke? That seems to be my real issue.

I really want to use this picture though. Is there any good ways of making may own smoke? Then I could remove most of what's there, and just add my own, but I don't know how to make that look realistic.

Any tips on making two dimensional clouds then? The pick is supposed to be of a burnout... so I'm going to end up with this problem regardless. I hate to beat a dead horse, but I think it would look really good.
