The Day After by teriwood The Day After by teriwood
I leave this picture up -- bleached out as it is -- because it shows the difference between a plain scanned imaged, and one that's tweaked. You might notice that my other color work is quite vibrant, if I may call them that. They are not bleached out.

The key is to put the scanned image into a graphics program and only increase Contrast. Or at least do this before you do anything else. I used to try to muck with all the settings, and well, you see how much good that did on this image.

Just increase Contrast. I've heard that you can do this from the scanner software, but I've had less luck with that. But it does at least improve your scan.

Have a good day.

I actually kinda like how the colors are very faded. It's more . . . I dunno, story-like.

Interesting to hear you say that. I once had a page in a comic book that I worked on that came back from the printer very faded -- and it was a pivital full pager. I fixed it in the reprint, but everyone perfered the original faded version. So ... you may have a point. :)

Simply enchanting! Is that watercolor or colored pencils? I really love that tree.

OH! I didn't mention that, did I? It's done in color pencils, actually, on sketchbook paper. And thank you about the tree. I'm starting to really like trees -- all those possiblities for free flowing lines. Whee!
