Do you want to see something funny? And by funny, I mean terrible? Here’s a comparison study of what my scanner does to watercolors and what John’s does. I’m using the Brother MFC-6490cw and he’s using the Epson Expression 1640XL. Mine’s on the left, his is on the right.
Every time I scan one of my watercolors, it kills me a little to see what my scanner’s done with it. Most of the time I just sort of accept it, because I don’t want to bug John. But I just wanted you to know that I was not kidding when I said my scanner destroys my paintings.
I didn’t mention this on Thursday because I forgot, but if you are all up on every social network and art website everywhere, I’ve been a lot more active lately on Deviantart (where there is a Dawn Chapel group you might join) and on the Google Plus, which I’m quite fond of and have created a G+ page for The Dawn Chapel – should you be of a mind to plus-one that page, I’d certainly be grateful! And I will try to be in the habit of posting process sketches and worldbuilding notes to these places, if you’re the sort that likes the webcomic version of dvd extras.
I’ve been spending a bit of time every week livestreaming when I work on artwork, too. Most of the time it’s for working on commissioned pieces, but I’d like to get into the habit of livestreaming at a regular scheduled time for working on the comic, too. I am thinking Mondays and Tuesdays, 8am-12pm and then 1pm-4pm pacific time on those days. Possibly maybe. For the time being, twitter’s probably the best place to find out when I’m broadcasting.
