Do your tracing from the SVG download posted in the Source image deviation.

It includes all of the reference images with the correct canvas size at their full resolutions. This prevents tracing from the wrong previews, at the wrong resolutions, and with bad canvas sizes. All the other images are just there to make it clear which one is which.

These are the changes made in the last ones:


Before, After, 2 hours of editing


Before, After, 4 hours of editing

The deadline is 7 days from now, June 10 2012.

Do you know how to put in Adobe Flash? What I'm trying to say is when I export a video or see the SWF file, it doesn't let me get a clear vector background, meaning that it shows pixels (almost poor quality). The PNG file works alright, but I can still see some pixels around edges when I animate. Is there a way to fix this?

Here's Part 1: [link]

I could use some advice about clouds from someone with more experience. There's quite a few things I'm not particularly happy with. :hmm:

Dooone! I've added some notes in the description of the file about it.

I believe I am done! [link]

There were a couple of things I guessed at, so if any of them seem off feel free to yell at me.

And the water is done:
SVG: [link]
It may need some clipping or creative layering where the water enters the culvert, but shouldn't be a big deal.

I got this one. ;) #9 is mine.
SnowedEarth's avatar
#9 is free, I won't be able to do it...

Lol, I opened up and was going to grab a region, but I got distracted. Ah, well. Next time again, maybe.

I reckon I could give #8 a go. =)
90Sigma's avatar
I'll give region #7 a try.

Can you please use a different site or link directly to the images? The site you are using ( will not load on my connection.

There's an SVG download for the region map [link] with all the outlines in it. Minus is working for me, and nobody else seems to have issues, here's your section [link] maybe the direct link will work.
90Sigma's avatar
I'm willing to bet that no-one else has an Internet connection as bad as mine though :).

Those links worked, so I should be good to start tomorrow.
