http://pearllightstudio.blogspot.com/2011/07/illustration-friday-gesture.html the image above has been renewed, using split scan and merge methods. Being that these images are 11x15, stands to reason I have to scan them in sections. I also went and tweaked levels; and increased the blue areas of the eiffel tower where it domes, and in the middle where the triangle shape is. Those spots didn't get a good coat of watercolor, so I fixed that digitally.
To my surprise, scanning the image actually brought out more of the 3D effect of the foam pads the characters are on. That's why a shadow is slightly cast around their shape, because they aren't level with the backdrop, and rather levitating above it. I'm quite happy with this renewed edition, and still have future plans for the sweet little story backdrop to match this picture. ^.^
