There are heated debates on scanning line work. Grayscale? Bitmap line art? Personally, I scan at a very high resolution and usually convert a super high res grayscale to bitmap with Photoshop. It's not quite as simple as it sounds. I use a variety of techniques to get my final result, but today I decided to see how different the same image looks between grayscale and line art.
In the grayscale case, I used the 'levels' option to push the blacks and whites to their limits. Here is the side by side comparison. What do you think? We're talking print size of course, so if you zoom in on the bitmap you're going to start to see some stair stepping.
