mavinster Posted September 23, 2014 Share Posted September 23, 2014 Hi, I'm new to Paint - and new to image editing, really. I have been fiddling with images found online with various image editors, but would like to use my own stuff. I have scanned a sketch of mine (using pen and pencil) onto my computer, and the quality is not terribly good. I have seen others who have hand-drawn stuff online and theirs looks rather nice - good thick lines, and nice shading. I would like to do the same. This is my sketch (it is a very first draft, by the way!) How can I make this into a better image? I need the outlining to be sharp (the gaps are deliberate) but I also need the shading within the border to be visible. I have tried a few things I found via this forum (and elsewhere) - I tried: 1. Adjustments>Black and White 2. Adjustments>Brightness/Contrast with Brightness at Max and Contrast at Min 3. Effects>Artistic>Oil Painting I got this series of instructions from the forum. It resulted in a blank, greyish image. I also tried working with Curves...but it didn't seem to do anything when I moved the points around. As you can see I know next to nothing about image editing! Could anyone give me a hand? Thanks! (On another note: I downloaded a plugin pack from the forum and my antivirus has just removed every single .dll as being not safe...)
