I’ve experimented with it in the past, with varying degrees of success. Unfortunately, given how small I draw, tracing an image in illustrator ends up with multiple lines being merged into a single shape. Can’t say I’ve tried it with a bit mapped image though that I can recall.

It’s food for thought, but I’d be a little reluctant. Past tracings have removed some of the character I feel.

I usually add the annoying, but useful extra step of vectorizing the artwork, which smooths the lines up and gets rid of most of the smaller noise. Inkscape or Illustrator can do that. Not sure if there’s any other simpler programs that can do that, though. <:)

Its just me or there is a single white pixel at the bottom left?
If you zoom in close enough, yes.

I’m not the artist, but this has happened to me when I inked drawings traditionally, scanned the lineart in as pretty much just 2-color black and white for digital coloring. Applying a stark 2-tone palette to hand-drawn art tends to produce "noise" which manifests as speckles of black on white or white on black, since the lines aren’t captured smoothly if there’s no greyscale gradient.

Wouldn’t be surprised if BtD works about the same way.
Pretty much this. Converting scanned line-art to a bitmap produces ’noise’. There’s only so much you can clean up really.

If he wanted a high correct answer ratio, he could have answered one question correctly then stopped answering anything after that. It would be a 100%.
