All Apostles are remembered in some sense, forgotten in some sense, never known in some sense, remembered and forgotten in some sense, remembered and never known in some sense, forgotten and never known in some sense, and remembered and forgotten and never known in some sense.

Very nice, I need to figure out how to do that so I can make actual art.

Oh cool! Positive feedback! And people want to know how I did it.

Yep, potrace. First, I compared all of the versions of the image I had and chose the one with the most detail. Then I doubled the image's size, played with the contrast a little, and then got tedious.

PSP3 lets you zoom in real close (I prefer around 8:1) and have two colors on the mouse (left-click and right-click). So, for two or three days, I changed each pixel to black or white, occasionally potracing to see if the results were any good.

And I did that to each and every line and curve in the image.

The results aren't perfect though. I changed a few highlights that weren't tracing that well, and added a disc to the crest. The discs aren't as round as I'd like them either, but by the time I noticed it I was sick of looking at Syadasti and said "good enough."

It's public domain. There's only one piece of advice on asking permission to use a public domain work:

Talking to yourself is okay -- but if you answer yourself, you have a problem. ;)

He's full of shit!

There's nothing wrong with answering yourself.


Agreed!  It's when you have to ask yourself to repeat yourself to yourself that you have a problem!
