    When you've drawn the image to a level that you're happy with, it needs to be inked (which means using a dark pen of some sort to make the lines stand out.

    Then scan the image and open photoshop.

    click Create new layer from background.

    then Image>adjust image>Levels

    you'll have an image that pops open with 2 peaks. Move the triangles under the image so that they are roughly at the middle of both peaks, this will get rid of any smudginess on the image.

    I know this wont make sense just from reading it, but if you follow th instructions whilst in photoshop it should all become clear.

    hope that helps.

    Easier process:

    Just sketch it really light in PS. Then on another layer go over your sketch with a solid brush in PS. Done.

    You don't need to scan anything.
