Nice personality here but where is her hair?? ;-)Is there a way to scan non repro pencil and remove the blue easily in photoshop?Always found it funny that "non repro" blue is now VERY reproducable.
it's there...I guess she just has a flat head.I always select the blacks and copy in a new layer after adjusting the levels. We were taught to use threshold, but I think is makes for poor line quality. If anyone knows a better way I am all ears.
If you press down hard with the blue you will always have a faint line no matter what process you use. Otherwise, removal in Photoshop is pretty simple:Convert your scan to CYMK. Click on the "Channels" tab and delete the "cyan" layer (this will make it a wacky color, but you'll see the blue line is gone or reduced). Convert to Grayscale and delete the "yellow" channels layer (grayscale mode usually only has a "gray" channel, so it's not missing much). Then Image > Adjust > Levels as needed. You can convert back into CYMK or RGB if you're starting to color. If you use a red col-erase, the same process will work too (substituting red for cyan).All that aside, if you aren't preparing lineart for color, I dig leaving in the blue/red sketch lines. They add character and movement. :)Ben: Is she a specific deity, or just inspired by the culture? I dig the line-weight, jewelry detail and body type!
This drawing comes from the Hindu devatas (Devas) depicted on the walls of Angkor Wat, Cambodia. They are Demigods...my other research is conflicting...so I will hold off from interjecting more.As for the rest...Line-weight: simply that is why I love inking...jewelry: my wife is a jeweler so...body type: As noble as I put on, the truth is I am like everyone else; just drawing what I like.Thanks.
