a sketch by husdant.
Interesting and therapeutic medium to work in but… My scanner really turned against me on this one. I was surprisingly pleased with how this was turning out. Then I scanned it in and saw it on the screen. I was horrified. The scanner magnified tonal differences in a way that made shadows look like bruises and texture like abrasions.
I made adjustments to the picture and scanned again. I tried making adjustments in Photoshop and made more adjustments on the picture and I scanned again. By this time I had only a few scrapes and a scab which I smoothed away (mostly) with Photoshop.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll try using a camera and see if that does any better.
