Need some line drawings I can mess around with in Microsoft Paint.

Unread post by County98 » Mon Mar 13, 2017 9:20 pm

I tried to search "art", but the word is too short.

I want to leave some visual drawings of the color scheme I want, but can't find any good line drawings that I can just color in with Microsoft Paint. Or maybe you computer smart guys can magic something up for me?

Either front, back, and at least one side, OR a front/side quarter view and a back/side quarter view.

If you guys can generate something that would be fantastic. Cove needs to stay Argent Silver. Sides of the car up to the body line will be a medium blue, like the '69 Lemans Blue. Top/hood/frunk lid will be ermine white. Nose will be ermine white as well, but the tail will be blue under the cove to the bottom.

Please help? Thanks guys! Kind of in a crunch trying to get this sorted out before I go.
Cheers!

Like this? (See attached line drawing). It's the only clean line drawing I have for a late-series Corvair.

If you'd like to have fun with line drawings of early sedans and forward controls, there are a couple posted here:

Attached is one of them, but it's for a Greenbrier, not a late.

By the way, you can download Paint.Net for free on the internet. It's much more powerful than Microsoft Paint.

Cool, thanks! I tried the drawings from the manual, but they aren't clean and Paint won't fill the voids.

Hi County98! Download a copy of Paint.Net. It's freeware and has a lot more features than Microsoft Paint. Among them is the ability to set tolerances for the paint bucket. The tolerance setting determines how liberal the paint bucket will be when filling in "empty" spaces. I write the word "empty" in quotes because there are often stray pixels of color in areas that appear to be blank to the naked eye. Also, the lines separating surfaces need to be crisp and completely enclosed. Otherwise, the paint bucket will fill the entire file with whatever color you want to pour. Shown below is an example of what the above Corvair line drawing looks like when colored-in using Paint.Net. Al ::-):

Al that is great!

Has anyone tried to convert it to a vector graphic with inkscape? My laptop went down otherwise I would try.
