Our puppy, Kaycee (Yellow lab mix)

#1, original
#2, Live Trace version
#3, PhotoShop straight posterization at 6 colors

I wanted to play with Illustrator CS2's auto trace feature so I fixed her "dog eyes" in PhotoShop to make them brown again (camera reflects blue or green for animals ya know). Used the pen tool to select her outline and saved as a native PSD file.

Opened this PSD file in Illustrator CS2 and chose the Live Trace function and set it for "Color 16" (I tried Color 8, but it lost details in her eyes).

Copy and Pasted the trace back into Photoshop as pixels. Added a shadow and background.

I think the result is acceptable as a fun illustration and the Live Trace makes for more realistic colorization of the shades of fur.

I thought so , nice job by the way. Do you have CS2 illustrator if not have you tried the new trace feature (with the trial) it works very well.

Yes I have done a lot of work with flash, I have cartoons of all my coleagues done in flash, started about 3 or 4 years ago. There I use the pen tool also. I have done some recent ones with illustrator and just recentley I tried out the trace tool n a phot that I turned into a sketch in Photoshop then I was able to scale with no loss for a card I built in flash and it came out GREAT.

Well the guys at work did not really want to end up on the web, so rather than not post I found some guy on free stock photo web site and cartooned him up, this is the same process (using flash) that I used on my team. Only difference is in any animations I use different lips (animated lips/mouths, more cartoonish as attached image)

sometimes I might add more eye detail but really I just like to keep it simple, 50% of time I use gradient in flash for hair as seen here other times just one color. This is an export to png then taken to photoshop to add the original image. Of course in flash this is vector so loss-less.
