IF: Sweater

This week's Illustration Friday is one of my favorite things in the whole world:

Ok, but now I have a question... HOW DO I HANDLE THIS IMAGE SITUATION!? You know what I mean? When you take a scan/photo of your painting/drawing and you have to deal with all the warping and craziness in the background! The image above is how I would normally handle it, by adjusting the exposure and maybe dodging out some of the darkness in the background. And it's alright, but that still doesn't 100% do it for me.

This image above is where I cut out the image and pasted it on a white background. I didn't go and smooth out the edges (which I would do if I was going to really go with this) but I don't like this either! It leaves out some of the subtle information around the edges.

The image above is without any editing: darkness/craziness all over the place.

WHAT DO I DO?! I need help.

Thanks to some of your help, I was able to make this bottom image look much nicer (top). No more of using my terrible scanner. Also, levels in photoshop is pretty great. Pencil still looking strange in some parts, but that's alright.

Paint next.

IF: Reverse

Started painting on fabric

New Knitting!

Been sick all weekend, so I finally finished knitting this turban. It is a little hard to figure out how to wear it, but I like the way it turned out. Excuse my super sick looking face... Gatorade has been hooked up to my veins for a speedy recovery.

IF: Surrender

This turned out a lot better when I cut up my original painting, and collaged this.
