I scribbled this little guy out in a meeting, inspired by the Helldivers skull logo.  I also tried to keep the lines really light and took a picture before shading it.  Below are three different attempts to clean up the inks.  Left: in The GIMP using color levels to strip out everything but the black (learned from here).  Center: taking the levels one into Inkscape and tracing the bitmap with the brightness cutoff threshold at 0.55.  Right: again starting with the levels one, and having The GIMP define a path around the lines, then stroking them with a 1pt solid line, and filling.

I like the Inkscape trace the best.  I’ll probably color this guy sometime…
