Aww don't be sad, all my paintings look better to me in real life. The detail is more easily appreciated in person because technology cannot do something of this nature justice. That being said I love this, I think it's awesome!
It DOES look really different. Like, it kind of diminishes all the work you put into it while you were working on it at home. In real life, the hair was so much smoother and dark. It still looks good though, but the scanner did make an incredible difference
