Bust. by GrainWaves Bust. by GrainWaves
How come it always look so different aftre it's scanned? D:

I might need a new scanner soon.

Pencil: 2H, HB, 2B, 4B
Time: 8+ Hours.

My.. 2nd piece of erm marble bust thing drawing, it's very hard.. I spent more time on this one just to make sure that the drawing actually LOOKS like the bust.

I know quite a few tricks to edit your drawings so it doesnt look all faded etc..

Scan in gray-scale removes any unwanted colours as mentioned above, after that change the brightness and contrast (preferably slightly more brightness and alot more contrast.) And if you have photoshop CS you can change the offset (shadows) Exposure(highlights) and gamma correction( i think its the image darkness overall) which really makes your pics pop after all the modifications.

Photoshop trial can be downloaded for free on the Adobe website, but i use a cracked version which isnt exactly...legal xD

With all due respect, I can't consider this sketch being truly finished; there's still just a bit too much white. Considering that you used something as dark a 4B, it doen't look like you made much use of it, I reckon this shade could be achieved with just HB.

Just out of curiosity, did you sketch this vertically in front of you, or on a desk?

The actual drawing is quite.. well.. dark.. I agree with what you said about the scan: HB.

Thought we cannot all blame it on the scanner.. I think the artist is at fault here also, That Artist just has no idea what the fault is. (tis maybe why That Artist submitted this.. hoping her fellow Deviants may be of help)

Almost vertically infront of me.
Just out of curiosity also: Why did you ask? o-o'

Sketching vertically is the most desirable position for actually sketching something in real life; you get a much better view of your art and the object at the same time, so you can make direct comparisons; sketching something with it flat down means that part of the paper is further away from you and it's much easier to distort things. The two ways of drawing also have completely different ways of holding the pencil.

Oh I see now.
I sketch vertically because it's comfortable that way.. I don't like having my paper flat on the table most times when sketching sometihng real life.. especially when the paper is A3 or similar. It's very uncomfortable stretching over it D:

I have notice the difference in pencil hold though, but I confess, the way I put myself you could say, when I draw.. It's rather instinctual, as opposed to being taught that way..

I recommend you try holding the pencil in the correct way for sketching fine arts. I can tell you that it's a lot different and that most of the movement comes from your wrist and arm rather than your fingers. Holding the pencil the write way also builds up texture and improves manoeuvrability oontrol over time.

You know, to make it a little more even you should scan it in greyscale. Or at least make it black and white when you put it in the computer. That'll hopefully eliminate the greenish colour.

*sigh*
You noticed the greenish colour also?

I'll try greyscale scanning when I figure out what that is in Chinese..

(Lol..)

No "toggle language" option? D:

Nope.

Suprisingly.. that thing was made in China.

Not that it has anything to do with 'toggle language'
