Gift Art Lily

Still in the tight pencilling phase.

The pencilling itself is fun but scanning and cleaning is a dreadful experience. I couldn't get the right balance between getting good contrast with the lines, removing noise while preserving valuable detail, made me wish I inked it instead.

Ser, nasubukan mo na ba yung dodge and/or burn tool sa cleanup? Malaking naitulong nun sa kin sa paglinis ng noise na di matanggal sa levels at curves.

just make sure naka-set siyang i-dodge ang HIGHLIGHTS at i-burn ang SHADOWS.

PLease ignore kung nasubukan mo na. ehehe.

Oo, salamat sir. Actually last week ko lang s'ya aksidenteng na-discover, dati kasi puro Levels at Brightness/Contrast lang ako.
