Was using recently to do this. Technically, it doesn't create
line art, as there are no lines, just pixels. The results will not be
consistent unless all pictures taken under the same conditions. You can
improve results by applying layer effects, usually. Look for pencil sketch
effect in paint.Net.

I used coral auto trace and AI auto trace many years ago. I'm sure those
features work much better now.

Best results I've achieved were with AI or other drawing program with
layers. Place your photo on lower layer and fade the layer. Add tracing
layer and get out your 'rapidograph pen'.

With quick paint solutions, you may spend a lot of time tweaking things.

$5 is really cheap. Get the vector file too, if you can.
