Well I'm in kinda a troublesome situation.
I know how to scan but my scanner is to small to scan my pictures. They are the size that most of the artists are working on. But I can't find a scanner to fit my page on. Does anyone know where to find a big scanner 'cause most om my friend scanners are to small too :cry:

Mustek A3 scanner is probably the most affordable. It's pretty basic but scans black and white well enough at 300 dpi. Try searching eBay.

*edit* or scan your work in 2 halves and join them together in photoshop.

Try this place, I've bought 2 of these 11x17 scanners from them in the last 6 years and they work fine.
