You're scanning software should have those options, you might need to look in the advance options to edit your preview/scan. But basically by plaing with the little levers to get a better or more darker image.

If you're already in photoshop with these, then you can go to I think IMAGE/ADUJSTMENTS/LEVELS

I made my comments in the other thread but I'll still say I see some major improvements here!

I'm inspired to go back to the basics for my own work dude.

Class is gonna get in the way, so don't sweat the speed of how you progress just progress, does that make sense?

I'd consider going over this with another piece of paper to thicken and mess with line thickness/weight to see if you can smooth out what you like of this sketch.

think contour line, but remember to keep it angular since this is masculine.

If you get really aventurous?

get a sheet of bristol, put it on top of this, get a thin or small brush with a good tip and a bottle of ink and trace over the major lines worth keeping to see your work here tranform in ways you never trained your eye to see.

Those imo are some quickie execercises that I think will benefit you and save on time.

Let me know how it goes and post the results here!

I really appreciate all your help, Hunter. I'll try to hit up an art shop to pick up some stuff to do all that.

Also, dude, I have to do sketches this Saturday. Gonna be at a table at the Mocca Fest to promote the anthology I wrote for. My cuz asked me if I could sketch to get people to check our table out at least. I decided sure, why not. :oops:

Nice! If you see Jenny Devil/Gonzalez or Danny Hellman, tell them that Hunter said what's up!

I love it when an artist is at this stage! It's all so fresh. They don't have all the stupid bad habit style longings that people like myself and others have developed.

They can still be molded to maybe choose the better course for their own work.

It's much harder to break down bad habits then it is to axxxquire them Greg.

I practically have to decode my whole being in order to just draw something fresh or breakthrough these days dude.

Keep that in mind. Keepy adjusting your eye when you look at things and when you draw. Approach it like you do your acting if you need to. Find your motivation, and then execute your purpose, but always leave them wanting more!

Hope that helps, from a hack, lol.

I agree. The Hawkman pic is very good. You can tell he's got some bones under that meat.
