Time to start on the Sideart for my crazykong...

First i need to scan the side for dimentions and to preserve the original sideart..
Lucky me, i have an empty zacc at hand  Cool




Lets wash this cab, we dont want a dirty scan  Grin
Can you tell that i was a windowwasher in my past ?




Carefully putted the scanner on the cab, time to start...




Scan in progress....




Almost there....




I took some old newspapers and taped them together, i want to trace the outline of the cab for measurements.
that piece of paper is more easy to bring home that the complete cab...
(cabs are at my mothers attic..)
 



Lets mask the T-molding, i dont want a black line from the permanent marker there,
i need to preserve this T-molding, i never saw any replacement anywhere..




and done!  




20 scans later i can return to my house and start with the stitching, placing in AI etc. etc.

does anyone need "Zaccaria spacestation" Sideart ?  Grin




This is going to be a challenge, there are no good quality sources for CK sideart...  Undecided
Anyway, i got some, so i can start here

to be continued... (when i got time...)

I had some errors with auto stitch, so i decided to take a look and try it manual in AI..



As you can see i miss a part and here and there the scans are rotated a bit, so i decided to rescan the side

next time i will use a guide on the cab that keeps the scanner exact on the same line and work the way up instead of just scan it like i did..

in every experience hides a learning moment....  Wink

Back on this.

Its time to learn from earlier mistakes  Wink




After ajusting the guide by measuring left and right from the bottom, carefully place the scanner  Cool




While i was carefully placing the scanner, i heard some noises comming from behind me..

tum tum tum tum tuuuummm   hmmm that sounds like Crazy kong !
My Little helper plugged the Machine...
here my son, this stool will be more comfortable  Grin




Whatever you do xander, dont beat my high score  Cheesy




Almost there ...




And thats it, the last scan..
 



i ended up with 25 scans this time, and i increased the settings from 300 dpi to 600, so these files are a bit better than the first run   Roll Eyes




Time to stitch this bunch of scans together.... 

Later more  Tongue

Just in case, here's a great tuto done by Zorg who explains his method to scan a side art. It's in french, but the pictures speak for themselves  Cool

Zorg is currently looking for a 4600 see thru scanner, in order to rescan a nice piece of "rare" art.

if I succed in finding one, I will update the tuto using some more alignment tricks. ;-)

problem is always the stiching.

PS the tuto is alos available in english, http://www.gamoover.net/node/73
