    I got this ADF scanner pegbar thing nailed down.
    Several hundred hours = saved in advance.
    Several thousand hours = waiting to be spent drawing…

    That was my logic. I think I’ll experiment with a sheet fed and see what comes of it.
    Do you vectorize your images and color them afterward? What’s your process? What software do you use? I’m curious.

      I don’t know which model is best, but having spent what felt like a million hours on a traditional scanner with a peg bar taped to it, I’d definitely vote for a sheet-fed scanner.

          When scanning, I’d just clean each drawing as a bitmap in Photoshop, then composite with After Effects. These days I’m going paperless, drawing w/ a Wacom tablet directly into Toon Boom. So far so good.
