Monday's daily drawing

Okay. So here are two more scans. I am not sure I am happy with this. The bottom one is the original scan and the top one I tweaked in Photoshop elements. I still feel the yellow is not as sharp as in the drawing. Also the scan didn't pick up the date on the drawing. I am not sure about this. I needed a new printer anyway. Technology, what to do. If you have advice please leave me a comment. Thanks

Adorable! The fur is fantastic, the the little knitted sweater has great texture. Awesome.

Watercolor pencils? colored pencils??

This is a wonderful drawing! I love this bear.
For scanning, set you scanner to scan at a really high resolution, at least 300 dpi. I have mine at 600dpi. After you adjust the image in photoshop you can always make it smaller. Also sometimes putting a black sheet of paper behind your art on the scanning bed, so a little black shows around the edge seems to help the quality of the scan, especially if it is a light image. Hope this helps :)

This is adorable. You did a good job of making him all furry! I wish I had advice to share re:scanning and photoshop. I need the same sort of help!
