Tääädäää!!! I was bored and my inner voices screamed for innovation, so i decided to use FS in it's essence. guys, all this is like LEGO! if the resolution is high enough you can do, whatever you want :P every FIGURE COLLECTION will content 7 characters.this is all about fun, but i think some of them might be useful as well. It's all no magic - watch the sample. I'm using some kind of "tracing-technique", with the help of a little tool, which gives me the ability to make selected windows transparent :) cheers kix i love u all <3 References: J = Jesus statue in Rio de Janeiro D = Michelangelo's David L = Statue of Liberty M = Marilyn Monroe N = Napoleon on horse S = Samurai Y = Yoda

I have to do my tracing-technique in Illustrator!! Time & consuming are two words that echo through my mind!

dude, i love this. i started one with christos the redeemer and buddha, but haven't done anything else. similar technique. but what is this "selected tools" and does it allow the traced/transparent to stay on top while fontstructing? congrats. this is cool :)

hey fk.
what you see in the sample is first of all a picture from the net (marilyn)in a window of reduced size in front of a black desktop.
As a layer above it i got the FS window opened with a transparency of 50%. it's NOT the marilyn pic that is transparent, so all the FS stuff stays on top anyway :)

the prog is simply called "tranparent windows" and free, i guess. the cool thing about this technique is: if your browser automatically fits shown pictures to the window size, you can easily adjust the height of the picture, to make it suitable to the FS grid...

Fantastic, kix. Especially the details on the Statue of Liberty and Napoleon. Thanks for citing the utility. I didn't even want to ask how you did it, because it would make me spend more time on FontStruct than I should be.

kix, the technique illustrated here is mind-blowing and revolutionizes Pixel Art tracing using FS! Hands down one of the most phenomenally creative uses of FS to day! ^_^
