I’m just wondering if there’s a proper way to flatten pencil lines in order to get a really flat vector object, as you would in Illustrator. I come from a bitmap background, so I tend to fill in the tiny areas that the filler tool often misses with small lines, and end up with really messy objects that behave erratically at best when retouching them with the eraser/ repaint brush tools. Whenever I try to flatten the image via Drawing/Optimize/Flatten, I get pretty funky results that are still full of unneeded bezier points.
I guess this question is rather vague, but what I need, in a nutshell, is to know how to get really flat drawn objects that only have bezier points in their contours, and not all over the place (other than having a cleaner technique where every contour line I draw is just the way the fill tool wants, which may take quite a lot of time…)
Thanks a lot, and all suggestions will be GREATLY appreciated!
