Hi, I'd like to fill in areas with 4 solid colors and convert my drawing to a cartoon image vector file. Is there a fairly simple way to do this? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. I agree with the suggestions shared above. Quality of traced result from Image Trace feature may not be good. Here is a tutorial showing the manual process (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3sPuXmTLBj4).

 

Let us know if this helps or if you have any further query.

 

Regards,

There is too much texture (noise) in your image to convert it into solid shapes. So there is no fairly simple way.

Recreating it manually with the Pen tool seems the only way to me (but maybe someone else comes up with another solution).

I agree with Ton: Pen tool, and Shape Builder and/or Live Paint.

Yep, that's going to need to be redrawn, then coloured in using Live Paint
