|i once did this with a sheet of paper, a large marker, and a sheet of
|paper... i punched the paper, and scanned the resulting hole...
|with some liberal use of levels, paintbrushes, etc., i got a pretty
|keen effect off it...

Heh, I thought about that, but at the time I was going for more of a line
drawing look instead of a realistic one. I sort of still am, but wanted to try
your suggestion. So here I go with my paper and marker. After a few "U" shaped
punches, I finally just started tearing the paper around the hole I punched. ;)

Here's what I ended up with on first try:
BTW, that's my hedgehog, Zoey :) her feet are cut off, but type would cover that
up. You should've seen the process it took to get *her* lifted off the
background she was on ;)

Any suggestions on how to make it look better? Where's your stab at it? The only
thing I couldn't seem to get right was having any other color than white. Other
colors looked weird, especially darker backgrounds...Hm, wonder what this would
look like when run through Streamline???

Thanks much!! I learned something new today!
