    Default fencing drawings

    I need a nice, but fairly simple, drawing of people fencing to go on an advertising flyer.

    Ideally of two people, and with a bit of 'movement' in it, ie. not just standing there en garde. Needs to be black and white (or maybe silhouette) so it will photocopy well.

    Any ideas appreciated! Have looked a bit on the web but can't find anything yet.

    Muso,

    I have some black and white ink drawings of Rob Bruniges vs Nick Bell, and Rob vs Okazaki (I think from when Rob won the world championships).

    PM me your details and I can arrange for copies to be sent to you.

    Great, I'll PM you, thanks.

    Will they come out nicely on the photocopier?! I just can't imagine what they look like from your description.

    Any more offers? The more I get to choose from the happier I'll be

    They are single colour drawings taken from action photos, so they will photocopy very well. In typical Rob Bruniges style they are of him close quarter fencing. I also have one of a couple of epeeists as well, but I can't remember who they were though.

    you could try just taking a photograph and applying some kind of effect to it. can look quite nice, although sometimes looks a bit tacky.ive got to go back to work in a couple of minutes, but ill muck about with one of my images and post it up sometime tonight.

    Ah well, I don't care about that

    It's only to try and impress some new people, they won't know if it's an epeeist or a whatever anyway.

    That would be fantastic. I don't have any photos myself, and certainly don't have the technical know-how to fiddle about with them. Whatever you can manage would be appreciated

    here are the two pics i posted up a while back. they have been posterized so that they only consist of three shades of grey. should prevent deterioration when photocopied. i can email you larger files if you need.

    Doesn't work

    For some reasons your links aren't showing up in that post up there, unless it's just me. They do show up when I hit 'quote', but then I've tried cutting and pasting them into a new browser window but nothing happens there either.

    Poo.

    Will PM you with my email address and maybe that will work!

    I believe Jo Maynard is a bit of a budding artist - some of he rprints were being given as prizes at the Essex Open.

    I may not have talent, but at least I can take part in logical and intellegent debate.

    Photoshop has filters which will turn a photo into a line drawing. These can some times look very good.

    perhaps I should use txt speak? then no1 wud fink i wuz ignrant

    Or perhaps they would?

    Back on the subject, there seem to be a few threads on fencing art at the moment. Perhaps we could have a little competition for the aspiring artists/photographers? Short list the best ones, then post a poll?

    Any takers?

    Muso,

    I tried the whole .jpg thing but I couldn't work out how to insert the pictures, so I've sent a series of 3 pictures in the post to you. Let me know what you think, and in the between time some one like James might be able to explain to a techno dinosaur like myself how he managed to post those photos.
