when your scanner hates its owner

I can't find the way to calibrate my scanner and change it back as it was. it used to NEVER give me full whites, but I could easily fix it. now it gives me the brightest colors and KILLS all the shading passages from *any color* to white. so here is a bad scan of one of the drawings I'm making for shool

watercolors, coloured pencils, gouache, chalks. mainly watercolors!

never use water on non-watercolor paper

bad quality watercolor sketches :(
they all look a bit better in "real life". I didn't want to waste watercolor paper for these ones since I was just testing the final look of the little book I'm doing for school.

school sketches + personal :P

Again, some sketches made at/for school, all about Pictor's metamorphoses.
That's the coloful bird which turns into flowers before becoming a butterlfy. SOOOO rough sketch :D coloured pencils!

Some sketches about the girl, butterflies, trees etc.

This is the last one, something personal made for a drawing/painting I'm planning to make. I'm quite enjoying ink!

ok I think I should really go on with this blog. I'll force myself to draw a lot like I used to do some months ago and to PUT THERE what I draw. Both sketches and finished pieces. I think this is going to be a looong post.
Let's start from the last thing I made. I should call it "sketch" because it's something related to an illustration that'll be done for school within 6 weeks.

Watercolors + coloured watersoluble pencils, inspired by "Pictor's metamorphoses" (by H. Hesse)

This one is a bit older but not too much. I made it on october 8. It nearly killed me and yet I'm not completely satisfied with it x___x dunno what's wrong, maybe too much blue and not enough stuff and details.

"L'aurore", the sleeping beauty. photoshop!

here is the sketch I made while I was on the train to Rome:


....ok I lied, this will be a short post because I should upload something like 13 more drawings XD
you can see them on the left or by going to my DA gallery!
