It has been my wonderful scanner since 2002! ;_; I will miss it so much! Even though I almost definitely cursed at it on occasion. XD My computer things were like some people and their cars in highschool. I worked annoying jobs and begged parents for money to buy my computer equipment.
But now, the scanner is scanning with weird color bands in its scans, and today, it will not scan at all. ;_; I've checked that the power and usb cords are plugged in correctly, I've uninstalled and reinstalled the software - actually the software won't recognize that there is a scanner at all when I try to reinstall. >< Anything else I should check?
The computer is only a few years younger than the scanner, so I worry it is computer error, but more likely the scanner is the problem.
So, scanner suggestions? What do you use that you like?
Stuff I'm looking for in a scanner:
scans up to 1200 dpi
9 x 12 inch is fine, since bigger scanners are so expensive
This current scanner I have is really convenient in that it has these slightly raised edges around the glass scanning bed, so when I'm scanning a giant painting, I can line up a strait edge of the paper with the slight raised scanner edge.
But I guess a completely flat scanner could be modified to make me happy.
If you're curious, my current scanner that I'm fond of is by Hewlett Packard. 9 years of solid scanning satisfaction. XD
WHAT IS TOILET GENIE?
TG is a weekly webcomic that I draw, write, and publish. c: It is dark fantasy, currently rated 13+. The story follows a pug which discovers a genie living in a toilet. Through a series of odd events, the pug is turned into a woman. Before she can forfill her destiny (whatever that may be...) she must learn the story of how the genie came to live in the toilet.
WHEN DOES TG UPDATE?!
TG updates ~ Thursdays. But if the page is done early, it updates early. If the page would benefit from more time, it updates late.
I'm always interested in commissions, but I may turn them down if I'm cramped for time. Trades are a possibility, but unlikely. If you have to *ask* me for free art, chances are I will not give it to you.
