A scanner casts weird shadows when scanning something uneven like a spiralbound sketchbook. I find I get much better results when I use our Leica camera with the flash turned on. 19 3D Automotive Modeling While I sketch, sometimes my mind wanders a little and other seemingly unrelated vehicles may appear on the page. I find that sometimes I need a slight departure from the job at hand and treat this as a kind of break. Besides, many times, elements from those “unrelated” vehicles appear later on in the designs of the vehicles.
