Tutorial: Editing Drawings



Yes, I made a new tutorial! This time it's about how scanners work and how I edit drawings in Photoshop.

I know I said I wouldn't make any more tutorials, but I got soooooooooo many questions about this, and it's something I won't be putting in my artbook anyway, so I've been working on this all day long.

And now I'm tired... :yawn:

Oh well, hope it's useful :)

Oh wow, this is incredibly helpful! Over the weekend I went to Staples to scan some graphite art. (Staples destroyed it - the entire thing came out horribly whitewashed and grainy looking). While that scan is completely unusable, your tutorial has given me hope that scanning graphite drawings IS possible. I'll have to try scanning it again over there! Thank you so much!!!
