Thanks and No prob! for the girl actually i use a carmine red colerase to do a tight ruff of the final drawing and indigo blue colerase pencil right on top of it. i use cheap photocopy paper. the funny reason for that is psychological, because i never want to feel that paper is precious because i hate the pressure to draw perfectly. this way i am looser and it allows me to go for my lines more confidently. i then take this drawing that has both blue and red and scan it into Photoshop. in photoshop i push the contrast around using levels to get the white of the paper as crisp as possible. i then go to the channels and click on the red tab it knocks out the red. I crtl click on the red channel it gives me a selection. with the live selection i crtl+shift+i to inverse the selection. i go to the layers create a new layer and flood fill it with black and presto i have a crisp clean line drawing which i can work with. a little goodie is if you click on the "lock the transparency tab" you can actually color the lines cleanly. i hope that helps and makes sense. for the motorcycle i use a waterproof permanent ink .01 staedtler pen. i put the ruff under another sheet of paper under a lightbox and traced it clean. but the bike needs a little more tightening up so i will clean it up in photoshop. cheers
