Commemorate the greatest monster vs machine rivalry the world has ever known. This Instructable has all the files you need to create your own Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla stencils or learn how to make your own.
Step 1: MechaGodzilla
Base layer- this is the entire area of the subject (fig 6)
Details layer- the black parts from your binary image (fig 5)
If you want you can add an accent layer, I made the eye red and put this in a separate layer.
Remember that since this is a stencil, there cannot be any "islands." Make sure all the transparent sections of each layer connect to the edge somehow so they stay attached when you cut them out.
Put all these layers in one Photoshop document (fig 7) and make sure everything looks correct. Export each of the layers as a separate png file (to preserve transparency).
Import the pngs into Illustrator and use the "live trace" function to create an outline of the images. Export these traces as eps files. I've attached my photoshop and eps files below.
