Yay for my second post! I feel again a bit weird about this painting also. Once again they are very at their original size. Does anyone know how to get images of oil paintings on your computer without them looking like crap. Every attempt I have made does not look as good as the original. The sheen the oil paint has in certain places reflects the light of the scanner and does funky things to the image. It drives me crazy and if anyone has a solution to this problem please let me know... thanks!

You definitely handled the color much better than the black and white, the likeness is impeccable in this one, doesnt look like crap at all

Thanks... The black and white one I started painting without fixing the errors in the underlying drawing.... perhaps that explains the likeness issue :-) thanks again.

adjust brightness level or use a camera, tripod, and good lighting
