Finishing your drawing with a little help from photoshop
When you have made a drawing or illustration, you can scan it in your computer.
Here are some reasons why you might want to do this;
- Your average drawing won´t be bigger that an A4 size, so it will fit nicely in your scanner.
- As soon as you have scanned your drawing, your have a copy, or two, or three, as many as you like. And you can send it in one click to anyone in the world!
- When you look at your drawing on the computerscreen, you can see a lot more detail than you could ever see with your naked eye.
- Just about every computer these days has a simple photoshop program. With this program you can get rid of smudges very easily (there where even an eraser is useless), you can brighten your drawing and make more little changes with little effort.
You don´t have to be a wizard to use photoshop to make little changes.
You can even make big changes, but very soon you will see that mostly a little change, if any, is all a drawing needs.
CAUTION! Don´t think you can fix a bad drawing with your computer, a computer can only help enhance it. So if you don´t like your drawing, better start again.
Don´t overdo the cleaning,
leaving a few messy lines will keep it lively.
