In this next project, I left my comfort zone behind and tried out a technique that was totally new (and scary). The final verdict? Scanners are a wonderful medium!
The unique depth-of-field, unpredictability of the surface (i.e. hard-to-erase marks and scratches), and distinctive lighting effects made for great results in this illustration. I scanned the two figures at different exposures, made some digital adjustments, and the final illustration took shape.
