Ooh, I love this! The texture is amazing, it's so loose but it still has that autumn-y feel! The characters are adorable as well
Funny that you brought up the problem with the scanner... I had the same exact problem when scanning watercolors a couple of weeks ago! I learned a really good trick from my professor: go into the scanner settings and bump up the saturation and lessen the contrast. The scan you'll get might look garish, but it's a LOT easier to correct it in Photoshop that way than it is to coax color and subtlety into an image that just didn't scan in the first place. Hope this helps!!
