I loved the darkness and contrast of this picture and thought it would be a real challenge, I was right, too right!
Love this guy, I grew up watching him as Angel and now I think he's great on Bones.
I'm really happy with how the paper version came out but the scan is a complete pain. I discovered a tutorial on scanning pencil work here: [link]
which helped a lot but I don't have all the options shown in the tutorial so it's still not great, looks over exposed i think. But the first scan I did before discovering how to adjust setting was purely abysmal!
Any pointers any one wants to give me for scanning Graphite work would be greatly appreciated!
Time: approximately 11 hours. Plus 2 hours messing with dozens of scans!
Tools: 2H through 9B +blending tools putty eraser, pencil eraser and fixative
