resolution for an exhibition. I scanned them with
a whooping 800 dpi, and colouring such huge images simply isn´t
fun, even with 1500mb RAM. Every step took maybe 5 seconds
to react, and when filling big patches of colour I could take small
bathroom breaks till it properly appeared on screen.
It was a soul-crushing chore.
So I put the Wacom back in the drawer
and took out the colour pencils again. Again, the
colours come out like crap in the scan. I messed around
with some colour adjustment dialogues, but it
stayed very grainy. Ah well. Maybe I try out watercolour
tomorrow. The last two days were full of teeth-grinding,
especially working with pictures I don´t really like
anymore, so making some relaxed biro sketching and
colouring by hand was a joyous ride again.
EDIT: I noticed the bad-ass scanners in our
school today, and my drawing out with those
in my Photoshop/QuarkXPress class on wednesday.
Judging on that, I´ll see if I need a new scanner...
