Tracing arcade game sideart to make stencils

Today at CoinOpSpace.com Rich at ThisOldGame.com posted a blog entry about how to trace an arcade cabinet with some vellum and then take that tracing to final vector artwork. He goes through the whole process and has even suggested that he would send vellum to interested collectors so that more pieces of artwork can be reproduced.

It’s possible to not ‘scan’ an arcade cabinet

That is always a hindrance in getting some of this artwork reproduced. But with Rich offering to send vellum to collectors who want to take on a trace, he steps you through the reasons why this is just as good as a scan, the most important reason being that it saves a ton of time.
