|12:31 pm - Testing new portable scanner on Rochu art :D|
I bought a new portable scanner (this thing is so awesome XD) and decided to try it out on a short, short Rochu strip I drew a few weeks ago. Figured I might as well post since it's on my computer already, lol.
Rating: Er....PG-13? Maybe?
Couples/Pairings: ROCHU (Russia/China) from Axis Power Hetalia
Summary: Um...Ivan (Russia) gives Yao (China) a sunflower (cliche, I know) and...things happen from there XD
Didn't have time for any photoshopping except to adjust the levels to make the lines more visible (scanned in pretty light since I don't press that hard with a pencil). Maybe I'll add more effects and sparkles later :3
I KNOW EH?!?!
The one I bought is kind of like this one;http://www.amazon.com/VuPoint-Solutions-Portable-Scanner-PDS-ST410-VP/dp/B002R0BFAA/ref=dp_cp_ob_e_title_0
Except it's a different brand since I got it from Amazon Japan and they didn't have the VuPoint brand one (mine's a Hidescan). If you look on youtube you'll find tutorials on how to use it, but it's really easy and works like a charm.
I love it so much *O* I can't remember how I came across these little darlings, but I'm surprised not every university student is wielding one and sitting in the libraries at the beginning of the semesters, scanning the textbooks.
Here's the tutorial I found that really sold me. Mine works exactly the same way (even has the same buttons), and I don't know about the VuPoint brand, but mine came with the microsSD card and the adapter to stick it into my computer (but even if it didn't, it had a USB cable to connect it to my computer, but memory cards are much easier to use I think).
If you search on amazon for "portable scanner" you'll find a bunch, I saw one as low as $60, but I wasn't sure how the quality would be for that price, so I shelled out a bit more for the one I got. I only wish it came with a case or something for the bottom because I'm always afraid of getting it dirty or worse, breaking it since the sensor's there, but meh, it came with a little pouch to stick it in so I keep it in there when I'm not using.
