Mermaids swimming. Blah! i drew too lightly and can't get the lines to show up well. Any suggestions?

does your scanner program thingy have a stretch detail or contrast brightness option? Try upping the contrast to make the lines darker....what a shame, the mermaids look purdy too *sniff*

This may seem a bit strange as a sugestion. but try useing a softer pencil keeping it very sharp, with the aid of emery paper or even an emery board. The type that you would use for filing your nails would be fine for this. You can also buy small books of emery paper at art shops especialy for this purpose.
I hope that next time I see your work I will be able to actualy see it!

You can try using a blacker medium to improve the line quality in your drawing. Try a B or 2B pencil or a black ballpoint pen to darken the lines more. You can get mediums like those at any art supplies stores (avoid crafts' stores). Other than that, you have an overall great piece of artwork.

Even though everybody knows better than me when it comes to anything like this, i would suggest taking the original copy and tracing over it with a darker pencil or pen. (i think that it's great anyway) -_^
