Speaking of inks, my lines got crapped on when I scanned and used threshold on this shit. I was pissed. I might have to start inking thicker. But yeah, I posted the original line art with pencils so you can see a comparison. Anyway, I hope you like. I'm glad I'm done. THANKYA GEEZUZ!

Yeah, mine will be gone in less than an hour, so if you click a link to it anywhere on the blog, you'll follow it to Nowheresville. I'll get it back on the 3rd, but yeah... it's for "religious reasons" or something deep I think. So yeah... see ya on this thingy or Google+. Deuces.

Notice my blue line drawing? Well, it's all good. That'll be gone before you know it. After you scan your picture, drag it into Photoshop and begin editing. DOUBLE CLICK the BACKGROUND LAYER and press OK.
Now, I drew my Koala on brown paper, but I want my image to be Black and White; just my lines and the white paper. THIS IS THE WAY TO GET RID OF THE BROWN PAPER IF YOU DREW ON BROWN PAPER: An easy fix is to turn the image into Black and White. You do this by going to IMAGE- ADJUSTMENTS- BLACK&WHITE. There will be a menu that pops up and you'll see a set of color sliders: Reds, Yellows, Greens, Blues, Cyans, Magentas. Slide them all over to the FAR RIGHT/ 300%, then press OK. Your picture should look something like this:
Your picture should be faded black in the spotted black areas and there should still be a trace of your pencils on it as well. It's ok, we're almost there.
What you'll do next is IMAGE- ADJUSTMENTS- THRESHOLD. Another menu will pop up but it'll only contain 1 slider. There'll be a 3 digit number up top. Set it to 145. This part is can be adjusted to how you want your inks to look. I just use 145 because it looks the best for my style... and it's what my professor said to do. But you can make it any number you want. Just makes sure it complements your line work!
After you've followed these simple steps, you should have clean, crisp looking inks without the grey leftover lines. You might have to touch up a bit with the PENCIL TOOL and get rid of minor spots of black that were dark enough to make it through the THRESHOLD process. Your finished product should look a lil somethin' like this:

This was a quick sketch I did of my waitress while I was eating at a restaurant. She wanted me to draw her because she saw my book. I agreed. Then she wanted it... for free. I was like, "Guuuurl, I'm a starving artist!" Then she was all, "C'mon, baby. Pweez!" The I said, "If you get me a free margarita, then I'll give it to you." She said no. So I told her to draw herself and leave me alone. The end.
These are my nephews. Well, not all of them are. They're twins (meaning there's only two in real life). My sister and I wanted to do a photo shoot with the boys, but do something a little more creative. The lighting, shots, and editing were done by me, of course. My sister helped by keeping the boys from falling off the couch. It's a lot harder to photograph two 8 month year olds than I thought. Enjoy.
