yea it did make a big difference. There are a lot less white spots on the face that would make the skin look more awkward. so thanks i think i will continue to do that whenever i scan. arigtou gozaimasu. jaana
If your scanner is not picking up the shades and tones, it's because you need to use a dark (preferebly black) background when scanning. It'll able to spot the difference when you do that. I always add a dark background when I'm scanning my sketches, because the paper is too white that the scanner find it difficult to pick up the shades.
Here's an example of a image I scanned with some black papers as background.
yea the drawing was an original self made one instead of one with reference materials so thats why the drawing isnt as good but i am working on it so hopefully the next one will be better. The reason i had to use harder strokes was because my baka scanner is terrible at picking up on color and tone. like on most of the sketches that i have poster there is shading but it cant be seen thanks to the bad printer but thanks for the tips on the colored pencil i shall try crosshatching next time
thanks for the picture comment. Also critiques are always appreciated. Yea i noticed the eyes as well. originally i was planning on fitting her whole head in but i drew it too big. yoruichi rocks. She is deffinetely my favorite character. jaana
