It would be nice to see a better representation of it. Tediuos or not, it looks like you did a good job and the flash glare makes it all but impossible to tell.

Thank you so much, coming from you that means a lot! I agree there was more that could have been done to make it better but at that point I definitely rushed :/

I hope you know that I mean a better photo representation an not a better picture. It's hard to truly appreciate your work when the digital file is so unclear, but from what I can see there is definite talent there. One of the first things I had to master was post processing and it's very tedious. But in this digital age this is the primary way that the world will see your work so it's important that it's as close to the original as possible. If you're ever interested I can share with you the things I do to get my work looking crisp - (since some of the things we do are similar). Getting a white on black image to pop on screen takes work.

Ok, I always shoot in light that doesn't need a flash, flash ruins everything! I use indirect sunlight, and almost always shoot outside. I find that I get the least amount of glare and the colors are truer.
I have Photoshop Elements on my computer for post processing. It's extremely affordable considering Adobe Photoshop is like $900 and it has all of the features you need for minor adjustments (on sale right now for $79.99). You can download it directly from their website and start using it right away. Under the enhancement tab you have "auto contrast" and "auto levels" where the program ajusts the lights and darks for more impact and it almost always does it just right. And then you have "auto sharpen" which can make your image just a little bit crisper. There are lots of other tools and filters to use and by playing around with all of them you can get an idea of just what can be done with the porgram. It's worth the money of you have a lot of artwork that you want to digitize. And especially for this site - if you want to sell prints you have to have good digital files.
I'm always available if you need help or have any questions!
Heather
