I've noticed it's notoriously difficult to scan pencil drawings. Been trying to find the scanning settings that suits my taste, for two years. But then, I don't produce that many drawings in a year.

Saturation is also responsible for blurring and loosing detail, it also gives pencil drawings a slight coloured look.

That's why I process additionally my scanned drawings in Paint.NET. However, I didn't use it for my last work: http://fav.me/d4kmj33

I found out for myself that using just scanner settings gives more pleasurable result, the closest to original drawing.

Edit:

By the way, guys, I need your advice. I wanna try to make big format drawings, but my scanner accepts no bigger than 9"x12" sheet of paper, so, I can make just several separate parts of a drawing. What program do I need to combine them in a single whole image.

You could use any commercial program that allows opening of multiple images. For example, Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro. I use Photoshop to open two images and merge them.

Could you describe step by step how exactly you do it? I have Photoshop. Thank you.

I have Photoshop 7, but the way to be done shouldn't differ that much. This is how I do:

- Scan both halves of the drawings using the exact same settings.
- Open both pictures (scans) in Photoshop.
- Select one of the pictures and use the Rectangular Marguee tool to draw a selection area (the entire picture).
- Copy (CTRL+C or Edit > Copy)
- File > New to create an empty picture.

Suppose your scan is 1920x1200, double the width so you will get 1920x2400. I recommend an extra increment so you will get for example: 2000x2500.

- Select the new empty picture and past the scan (Edit > Paste)
- Use the Move Tool to move the scan nicely in the middle.
- Now go back to the other scan, copy it.
- Go back to the 'empty picture' and paste the second scan into it.
- It will be pasted as a second layer, so it's easy to move the second scan around until it joins nicely with the first scan.

The extra space (increment) allows you to manoeuvre the two halves more easily.

- Save it as a psd file (Photoshop format), that will retain the different layers should the result not be satisfying.
- or Save it as a jpeg/bmp etc to finalize it, but it will not retain the different layers.

Now you have both halves joined. This is what I do to finish it:

- Use the Rectangular Marguee tool to select what you want (to cut ou/leave out unwanted/misaligned parts) and past it into a new empty picture. Note: When you do File > New, Photoshop will offer a new empty picture with the size based on your selection.

There is probably an easier way, this is the way I've figured out myself. I hope this helps.

It's THrashdude, not TRashdude.

My apologies for the confusion.
