Finally got around to cleaning this up in Photoshop. Still doesn't do the piece total justice, but until I can afford a pro photographer or a high quality scan, this will just have to do, I suppose...

So good to see this done! Scanning or photographing traditional artwork is so hard.

Yeah, and I am still really shaky on photoshop. I hope one of these days I can have it professionally photographed or get a high quality scan. This is as good as it gets with a 5 megapixel camera, LOL!

I already adored this piece anyway, but the cleanup you did for it makes it look fantastic! The colors and details are properly crisp and vivid.

Thanks! Not as good as it ought to be, but at least it's not muddy anymore. If there's one thing that's made me question my decision t do large pieces, this is it. But the opportunity for detail is just too great to resist! LOL!

that is gorgeous. the texturing of the rocks and sea surface, the totally believable paths of the waterfalls, the sloping layout of the castle, it's all so beautiful =')i can believe that the original is much more vibrant, but still i think this is a great shot of a colored pencil piece.

Thanks! I appreciate it! =) It does look a lot more crisp in person, and the details on the islands and in the water are much clearer.
