So I colored it XD and let me tell you, doing the shadows of EACH INDIVIDUAL CLOVER was a PAIN IN THE- . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Anyways, I've started to notice something; and it's really beginning to irritate me -_-. Does anyone notice how SOME of my drawings look a bit more yellow-toned and fade-y, whereas others are crisper and the colors are darker/stand out more?
The difference is, the yellow-toned version is the result of just scanning in the pic as it is, and the crisper-color version is when I put something called the "fading correction" to the 'low' setting.
Thing is, I take pride in not tweaking anything I draw traditionally in photoshop - my dad thinks it'd be great if I DID do small touch-ups in photoshop, and kudos to those of you who know how to do so and do it expertly
, but I guess I tend to want to stay true to the original of whatever I draw. If it's crappy, it's crappy, and I don't want corrections from a computer program to be the only good thing about a drawing of mine.
I don't know, maybe I'm an idiot XD but that's just the way I feel. I feel great when the 'faded' look FITS a drawing I do, and I don't want to use "fading correction", but whenever I DO use it, I feel like I'm breaking my 'untouched' standard . . . >_<
(btw, this particular deviation DOES have "fading correction" on it -_-)
