7 Scan­ning the line art

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

I scan my vel­lum ink draw­ing in as a 600DPI bit­map. Be­cause the art­work for the jacket will be used for a va­ri­ety of mar­ket­ing ma­te­ri­als, such as book­marks or the in-store floor dis­play, I cre­ate the en­tire jacket at 600DPI so that there’s a large, de­tailed file to work with. I also clean up any draw­ing er­rors dur­ing this stage. Some­times sec­tions are erased and re­drawn dig­i­tally while the im­age is in bit­map mode. Fi­nally, I con­vert the fin­ished ink draw­ing into a greyscale im­age and re­move the white back­ground, leav­ing only the line art on a layer.
