That’s not a stupid question at all! I tend to work quite small so most of the sketches on this blog are pretty much the same size on paper as they are here. I do try and work a bit larger than the intended size for full illustrations, just because it helps to tighten things up when the piece is reduced, but even then I usually sketch them out at a smaller size and then blow them up digitally and transfer them to whatever I’m working on for the final. Hope that answers your question!
Hi, this is probably a super stupid question. What scale do you work at before scanning? Do you work at a larger scale than the piece's required dimensions and then scale down? Or do you work at the exact size?
How/What do you edit your sketches in PS? :o
Usually I just desaturate them, since my scanner adds weird colour hues, and then play with the levels and/or curves until I get the right balance, then quickly clean up any leftover spots of dust.
