Commission: Split The Clouds by ShadeofShinon Commission: Split The Clouds by ShadeofShinon
Another commission for :iconfalgor:, this time of her wyvern character Dark.

Now, before I say anything else, let's dedicate a moment of RAGE for my scanner who kindly raped this picture. It ate ALL the nice hues and hints of other colours than blue that can be seen so much better on the original picture.
I swear, one day
I'll get rid of that shit and buy a new one.

Anyway, I really like wyverns so this was fun to draw. The background was a pain in the ass, though.
I still can't get over how badly my scanner destroyed this.

I hope you like it anyway!

That is really good regardless of what your scanner did to it. Honestly, i feel it is a good thing your scanner didn't get the fullness of this piece or i would probably have a heart attack right here at my computer out of sheer amazement. Job well done! :)

Still looks good though! I can see slight hints of where the other colours should be... maybe you'd like to try upping the saturation on Photoshop, if that helps? :3

I already did the most I could. If I tried to tweak it any more it'd just ruin it. I'll just try to live with it - the client gets the original anyway so my mind can be at peace for the most part.

Have you tried taking a picture of it with a camera? I found it came out better for my work with a camera than with the scanner we have at my house.
Reply
:iconshadeofshinon:
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
No, camera quality is never any better. At least not my camera. You need the right lightning and it's very hard to get the right cropping. I guess I'll just try to settle with this and consider buying a better scanner soon.

I don't suppose taking a photo could make it better?

No. If anything, a photo would just make it even worse. Scan (even the crappiest one) >>>>>> photo.

Well, when you find a scanner that's up to your standards, do us a favour and scan pictures you were unhappy with and post us a comparison. I think these are quite good, personally, but I haven't seen the originals, so I can't judge.

:iconshadeofshinon:
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I might do that if I'm not too lazy to. As for this picture, I can't do it because I'm sending the original to my client. I already have my eyes on one particular scanner, an Epson. We have an Epson scanner at our school and man, that thing is awesome. You don't have to photoshop the scanned pictures at all, it's just that good.

Then how about scanning this one with your school's scanner?
Reply
:iconshadeofshinon:
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
That might actually work if there wasn't a renovation going on in our school. I'm not sure if the scanner is in it's place. And I'm going to send the picture to the client soon. I'll just have to deal with it.

Yeah. But on the other hand, it's about 18km away from my home so I'm not sure if I'd want to waste three hours of my day to scan one picture. I'd rather do a mass-scanning session when I can use the scanner.

tosi hieno kuva on kyllä pakko sanoa!
Dark on niin kivan yksityiskohtainen ja nuo suonet tuolla siipinahassa on kanssa hieno asia...ite kun en sellaisia tee...ja kuten jo sanoin niin mä ymmärrän täysin, että miksi sulta kesti niin kauan tehdä tämä tausta...mutta ihana se on ja olen tosiaan todella iloinen kuvasta! <3
kiitos ihan hurjasti <3

Joo, tykkään väkertää yksityiskohtia ja tuollaisen vastavalon kanssa en vain voinut vastustaa kiusausta tehdä siipikalvoihin verisuonetkin. ^^'
Ole oikein hyvä vain! Darkia oli ilo piirtää. :>

I wish I could show the original to you. I wish I could always show the original of all of my drawings instead a scanned version since those tend to be more or less incorrect.
