More Sketches....Yet Again



I'm trying some new things. Oh, and my scanner stinks.....white paper always turns out dark cream. And if I try to lighten it, the image gets over exposed and loses color. Maybe I need a new scanner? Hmm...

ohhh is so beautiful! the colors are very sweet! I have to say that I have the same problem with the scanner. But mine has a lot of years so...i usually correct that colours problems with photoshop :)

I love the kitty on its back, paws in the air :o)

With the scanning, can't you select a white point on the scan image to correct the colour imbalance before the real quality scan is done?
My scanner is old, and colours come out weak so I have to 'up' the Gamma setting, but I can turn the off-white into white at the point of scan. Photoshop helps a lot too.

If your camera is better than your scanner, you may give that a try. It's worked on some of my larger illustrations.

Lighting is key on this, an auto flash may wash out colors.

I struggle with this, too. The problem is that the next scanner I want is a large format one which is insanely expensive!

Try using curves to correct it instead of B/C?
