Hi all. Ive a simple request, (I think)! I want to produce an image that's using a chinese character, a bit like a tattoo. Now when I insert the chinese character, it looks flat and too much like a font. Is there any way, seeing as I havent created the character myself, to get 'into' it and do stuff? For example, the character is flat and has smooth lines, for an example see: (http://comics212.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/kanji_of_the_year_change.jpg) .... tho real calligraphy is done by brush and has the subtle brush strokes, specially toward the 'ends' of the strokes/image. So how can I enhance the premade image and make it look more natural, like brush stroke? Or if I cant get 'into' the image, is it poss to somehow trace it and make a copy that can be modified? How? And yes I have tried selecting a brush tool/blank canvass, and creating the image myself but its too wobbly if you know what I mean? Ive got paintshop and fireworks and can borrow photoshop!! If anyone suggests a better software I will look into that too! Im no hardcore designer so simple explanations will be best for me!! Thanks everyone!
