Anyone got a suggestion for a decent-quality scanner? Preferably one with settings between "Ignore all light colors and oversaturate the bitch" and "EVERYTHING IS DARK LIKE MY SOUL (AND YOU STILL GET NONE OF YOUR DETAIL LINES)"?
As a result of this travesty of scanning (IT SUCKED OUT 90% OF HER SKIN COLOR, WTF) my scanner and I are no longer on speaking terms. In terms of putting up the comic, the scanner is more important than the tablet - I can color with a mouse (several original ML pages were colored that way) in photoshop, I just don't want to because it takes a long time and then my hand is a cramped-up claw for the next few hours. But without a proper scanner, I can't even get the artwork onto the computer in the first place.
Technically I COULD draw straight onto the computer with the tablet. Hrm. That would probably require my getting a decent tablet instead of sticking with my old, next-to-no sensitivity one (though that issue might be fixed if I buy a new pen). It would also require my learning how to draw that way, since I've previously mainly used the thing for coloring and not a whole lot else.
