View Full Version : Unicorn Foal WIP

Detail of the pencil study of the unicorn foal I'm working on currently. This portion is, I think, complete at this stage ...

I am still having trouble getting it scanned so that it shows the subtle detail of the original. I'm losing a lot of the lighter values and I'm not sure why. Any suggestions would be helpful!

Hay great to see you back Sport!
Way cute baby!

Try scanning it with a sheet of sheet acetate on the scanner first.

Yes ... I posted it first a couple of weeks ago ... this has 6 or 8 hours more work and the head is, I think, finished. Still more to do on the neck and back ...

That's one of the reasons I asked for suggestions on scanning, though, because I'm losing a lot of the subtle shading on these pencil studies ... this one doesn't look to me like it's got 6 more hours of work over the other scan ... but it does.
