I'm trying to fix a drawing that I did originally in colored pencil. Because the drawing was large, it had to be scanned in two sections and then pasted back together in Photoshop. Well, the two parts didn't quite match up, so rather than re-scan, I'm trying to just sort of blend the area where they meet. (My scanner is broken, so I used a friend's scanner and I'm not there right now.) Trouble is, I can't get the blended area to look like colored pencil. If I use the blur or smudge tool, it just looks...well, blurry or smudgy. How can I get a more hand-colored look? I hope I'm explaining this well enough that someone can figure it out. I've never done much with Photoshop and have no idea what I'm doing. I looked through some threads to try and find a solution, but I'm not even sure what to look for. Any links or advice you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
