Special thanks goes out to PurpelBlur
for his tireless efforts in streamlining both :#datrad: and #traditional
... it definitely couldn't've happened without him.
One of the challenges a traditional artist faces on the internet is how their work is presented. Since it's not a digital piece, we have to find other means of acquiring a good & accurate digital copy... and sometimes this can be tricky.
Here're two links that you may find helpful:How to Photograph your Artwork for the Internet
submitted this last year, and it truly does give a wonderful explanation of how to photograph ones work. Please give it a read if you haven't already.jeriweaver
gives a lovely tutorial on how to stitch together images through a scanner here
I understand some may not have the ability to use image editing software like Photoshop. There're free-use applications available on the internet, Gimp
being just one example. Use all the tools available to you, that's what they're there for.
I personally photograph my paintings rather than scan them... mostly because they're too large and I find that scanners don't take well to canvas. I will use a scanner for my watercolour pieces, though.
Lighting is key and I never use a flash... it flattens the image and causes burnt-out spots on the surface that can prove impossible to work around.
If you have any tips you'd like to share for how you present your work, please leave them here. I'd really like to hear how you transfer your physical work into the digital world. :>

- Send it in the form of a note
entitled "DD Suggestion" or some other variant.
- It's helpful if you send it using the :thumb######: code
, but it isn't necessary.
- Only send your suggestion to one
- By default, when sending me a suggestion you're giving me a licence to view the entire gallery. I may choose another piece and if this is the case, I will always credit you - unless you request otherwise.
- I most likely will not respond to your note, but I do read, consider, and appreciate every one.FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation? FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?
