Quote:I got to come up to speed with the transfer of my sketches and our workhorse scanner. Most of mine are in a spiral bound sketch pad that will produce those hanging chad thingies...perhaps I should switch to another type of sketch pad.Stacy and allI see that Wade and I are trying to encourage others to enter the sketching contest- As you stated here that your scaner was causing a delay to capture images.I am wondering now if many people are not aware that artwork can be captured with a simple good digital camera- I mean a simple one! I use a Sony Cybershot 5.1 mgpxl and then upload to Photoshop to adjust slightly, the contrast and brightness and sizing for the site protocols.Are others here constrained with limited use of a scanner? Consider your digital cameras and preferable tripod.MarkClear skies, maybe...Stacy

Quote:I have noticed lately that there have been very few fellow sketchers entering the monthly contests. There is a lot of talent out there, and everyone, regardless of your experience is welcomed to submit thier entries. What's the worse that can happen...you won't win?
