    maybe that explains why something didn't feel right after cleaning :)



    well even with a decent raw, it looks like i have a long way to go

    til i can start producing HQ scans...

    HQ scans here are terrifyingly clean -_-;;

    M7 test page? Is it like a cleaning challenge?

    It's a raw, page 15, chapter 26 in Witch Hunter which I'm working on

    right now.... and 3 hours?! i was lazy so i just used filters on chap 25 to

    reduce the work... At the cost of details though.

    There's not much you can do with that kind of raws.

    I was talking about the page that senbonzakura posted. It's one of the pages you have to clean in order to become a Bleach Maximum 7 cleaner. Look in M7 forum - cleaning academy if you're interested. We (they) can help you improve if you're really serious about becoming a HQ cleaner.

    Well, maybe not IMPOSSIBLE, but probably not worth the effort. Finding a better scan would lead to a much better page overall.

    If M7 is like Ju-Ni (and I think they are ) the cleaning test is a way to gauge someone's initial level of proficiency in cleaning and allow them to practice their work as they move up to HQ cleaning. So it's sort of like a challenge. I know that we included a number of pages of varying difficulties. As people move through them, they get to learn new techniques and work on harder pages.

    Re: Survey: How long do you spend cleaning a page?

    I try do do MQ/HQ on most of my stuff while still competing for first release. Sometimes successful with that, sometimes not. I'm a slow burner, can't help it. But I take anywhere from 20 mins - an hour, possible an hour and a half per page for hard to clean stuff. This page took me somewhere around 40 mins - an hour I think it was http://i28.tinypic.com/27ycxkw.png
