Bought a new sketch book recently. Been playing around in it. Anyone know how to make scanned in pics in photoshop better looking? Thank You.

Character development for something I'm working on.

Greek goddess thingy... just playing with the pose mostly. My wife called it "sexy" :)

Superman needs love too!

    My only complaint is that superman read as a girl to me first. I mean NOW i know its a guy, but something about it read as chick.

    Hmm.. good point. Should I make the jaw more square, the nose more chiseled? I see what you mean, but I don't know exactly how to fix it. Thank you for the critique.

    edit: OH, and the lips on the girl in teh superman photo need to move downwards too, but I had erased on that spot about 12 times trying to get her lips right and the paper was wearing thin.

    I think supes needs a thicker brow, smaller, squintier eyes and a stronger jaw. Am I incorrect?

    Are you scanning pencils into Photoshop? Try scanning in grayscale and then messing around with levels/curves.

    I think you hit the nail on the head about the jaw/nose/brow stuff. I DO like your character expressions though!

    try drawing your womens' eyelashes in a solid mascara mass instead of individually.

    Will do, I'll post the inks sometime in the near future. Thanks all for the critiques.
