oh I really like these, man I really should train on things like these, "likeness" and stuff like this.
I think these are really good, I think I downloaded this earlier to sort of pull it in my face that this is how an artist should draw.

anyway, have an awesome day. I love your sketches.

How do you get your pencil sketches to scan in so nicely? Mine always carry along a lot of shmutz and paper texture and whatnot. Plus you seem to have "cut them out" very nicely. The magic wand wouldn't be enough for the task. did you go through and darken the lines afterward in levels, cause it has some great value. Sorry for all the questions!

my technique is pretty much:

1. desaturate.
2. use levels to make the lines nice and dark. result: good lines but dark grainy texture of the paper.
3. duplicate the layer.
4. use levels to make the paper white/clean on this layer, this kills the lines a bit but the paper is nice and white.
5. use a mask or the eraser tool on this lighter layer, to erase the parts that are inside the sketch contours. you'll see the layer from step 2 showing through.
6. use a white brush to get rid of any specks, folds etc, that the previous step didn't eliminate.

this way, the dark/sharp lines will show inside/around the sketch, but like you said, it will be 'cut out' from the texture around it!
hope that makes sense ^__^;

Thank you for responding! I tried what you said and it worked for the most part. I think my major issue is that the sketches I'm working with are pretty small. Like 2x2 inches. So hard use of the levels tool leaves the lines kind of pixely. I'll have to try it again on a full or half page sketch.

You can definitely clean up line work and get rid of the extra noise you get from scanning in pencil drawings. That's probably what she does.
