Hi, I've recently started doing illustration and want to know peoples techniques when scanning them in after drawing them out. Do you simply scan it in, get rid of the white background and change the contrast? Or do illustrators tend to use the live trace tool in illustrator, or do they trace over them with the pen tool? If you simply change the brightness/contrast then how do you get the background transparent in order to colour it in? It would be interesting to know peoples different techniques! I tend to find it hard to get rid of the white background when having scanned an image in so I tend to use the live trace tool in illustrator. Please let me know what techniques you use to get neat crisp lines after scanning them in!
