    ok, that's what i'm trying to transfer to a canvas. i tried using acetone and burnishing with a spoon. no deal, it only smeared copier ink on the canvas. i also tried another technique with an iron and a xerox copy, but still had no luck. some ink transfered, but it was any detail, it was kinda smudgey.
    so, i'm left with one option, that i can think of anyway, that's carbon paper. talk about time consuming. i'm not too down with that, but i'll do what i have to if it comes down to it.
    any help would be appreciated. maybe someone also knows if kinko's does the architectual printing on the blue paper? ya know....blueprint...heh...i don't have any idea if they do it or how much it might cost for that shite...i'm only looking for 18x24...

    *maybe* if you had a light table, you could trace it onto canvas.... if the canvas was thin enough.

    if you dont mind drawing all the lines again or whatnot
    you can pick up mini projectors at most any art store
    i think they run like 40 bucks or so

    thanks for the suggestions. i'm really stuck. i don't know about tracing, though, that's alot of lines. if worse comes to worse, i'll give it a shot.
    hmm, a light box....i don't think this canvas is thin enough. maybe a projector....or carbon paper and a sharpie...i'll do some experimenting.
    i may just have to finish it in photoshop and have an 18x24 printed...gah...sucks...mass printing costs...

    btw, it was rendered in 3dsm. took 1 1/2 hours to render out at 3600x 2700 at a 1:3 aspect ratio and 300 dpi...lots of lines...

    im not sure bout some other ideas, but my frind who only paints uses a projector for his large paintings and some times for detailed stuff, u could try to simplify it so not tracing every line and what not then have that model as a reference for painting, good luck either way.

    I remember in highschool, this teacher used to do shit like that using GooGone...I cant remember the technique exactly but you could probally figure it out if you fucked around. It didn't look too hard.

    whenever i am trying to transfer something onto canvas, and it has to be exact, i put the image on an acetate sheet, then project it then trace the rough outline then clean it up later. you can get it really accurate that way.

    bitch, please. why don't you step up and get ko-wrecked....ha ha, just kidding. look, this is just an experiment. the projection idea isn't too bad.
    i'm leaning towards it, the more i think about it. i dunno, it's just crazy thinking about all of those lines.
    as for talent, i'm guessing you missed the bus along with kris-kross
