We want the Skump gotta have that Skump ow

I finished another portrait over the weekend, but I’ve run into some snags scanning the image. My scanner is picking up on the canvas like texture of the paper leaving a waffle pattern across the painting. Normally I use a smooth bristol so this isn’t really an issue but I decided to try an acrylic paper for the last two paintings. Overall the paper isn’t bad but if I wanted a canvas texture I would use the real thing, a stamped design just feels a little cheesy. I’ve enlisted a photographer friend to help remedy my scanning dilemma, it should be a better option anyway. Here’s the scanned version of Skump the luck guided wandering barbarian cleric of Kythera aka Driftwood. I’ll post the photographed version later for comparison. (looks ok small but large WTF)
