A birthday gift for my uncle, one of those people who have the blessing to be able to enjoy games and playing, no matter how old they are. Dark Souls is his favorite game recently, one of those games where a sword can never be too big.

Hi, nice work. I have a question to you- how did you upload this drawing to computer? Did you scan it or did you take a photo, and did you do any additional editing on computer to make it look so high-quality?

Thanks and I'm glad if I can help. I scan it at least 300dpi b&w photo, then you need to fix it in Photoshop to look decent. First fix the levels in Image Adjustment. Second, clear all random smudges on white and withe patches on black manually. Then, if really needed (usually if it goes for coloring) I turn it to bitmap and then to grayscale again, to avoid anything else but black and white. I guess that does the trick for me, but I figured out everyone has it's own method for this, and if my explanation isn't that good, you may check one of the many tutorials on line for fixing b&w image. Hope you'll find the way it works for you.

Thank you, I've took it as a challenge in a way, because the game design in super-complex, but it turned out fine, I guess :B
