Ok, I messed around with a new scanner I just purchased from Harvey Normans and can finally apply smooth edges (anti-aliasing) to my sketches. I redid my colour GNU -v- Bill Gates sketch. To have a look at it click the link in my previous diary entry below.
It makes a heck of a difference using this new scanner and anti-aliasing on the pics. Thank's to [Sh] for his constructive criticism ;-) All my colour pics should look a whole lot better from now on.
By the way, the scanner I bought is a Canon CanoScan N650U which only cost $199. Not bad if you ask me, and it works very well, except that it doesn't work in Linux (yet). I scan in Windows and then do my work in Linux using GIMP.
Ok I better get back to some drawing. I promised someone I would do a woodcut design for the GNU foundation this weekend.
