When you do you're traditional art in your sketchbook, do you edit the image at all? With photoshop or something of the sort?
nearly always! but the amount depends on the pic xD i p much always adjust contrast and a bit of saturation, cos stuff tends to scan more washed out than it is in person ;;; and more often than not, i do little tweaks to fix things that i didn’t wanna risk fixing on paper xD but sometimes [rarely rarely] i don’t have to do anything! bless those golden days ;0;/
so like this pic… here’s the raw:
vs the edit:
it’s one of the ones where i mostly just tweaked the contrast xD
[more examplessss under the cut, cos this might get long, but i think it’s fun to see some of these xD]

It’s darker than he thought.
Wandering in the night gets easier as the night goes on. The shadows grow and shrink as he walks but he isn’t scared.
“I wonder if they are worried about me.” He ponders, “Patton’s probably scared, Logan probably has his nose stuck in a book, and Roman… he’s an a*****e anyway.” Continues walking down the road losing himself and his thoughts and only snaps back to reality when his name being yelled.
“ Virgil! Virgil! Where could he be, Logan?” Virgil! Virgil!” Patton sounds close to tears.
“Pat, look at me… Look at me. He will be OK. We will find him. Now say it" nothing is heard so Logan says it again, but with more force. “Say it.”
“We… Will find him” Patton answers shakily.
“Now let’s go find Thomas and Roman hopefully they have had more luck” the two boys footsteps slowly grow faint.
Virgil of steps out of the bush he was hiding in, “They care?” He thinks, “they actually care, they’ve never cared about me before” These words keep running through his mind as he runs in the direction he heard the voices.
“ Patton! Logan! I’m right here,” his voice breaks “I’m right here.” The boys turn around at the sound of their names. Relief is so clearly shown on Patton’s face as he runs towards Virgil.
“I’m so sorry. “ Virgil starts to cry his words become incoherent, “I don’t know what happened. I don’t know what I was thinking. I –” his sobs grow louder as Patton and squeezes him tighter.
“ Stop that kiddo, you should not be apologizing. I should’ve never done that. I should be apologizing.” Patton says rubbing his hand on Virgil’s back. Virgil feels another set of hands joining their hug.
“ Patton is correct, we should be the ones apologizing.” Logan starts, “I cannot imagine why I would think it was a logical idea. Will you accept our apology?”
“Of course,” Virgil says wiping away tears, “Join in the hug circle, Logan.” At that notion the logical side grimaced, but obliged his request.
