Argh! I'm getting so frustrated with my scanner! 
I'm using Canon LiDE 110 and it does great work for black and white works but when color is involved... oh boy. My pinks turn into some kind of washed dull magenta, my blue turns into some kind of neon bright blue and skin color instantly becomes some kind of single shade pink. The contrast is always so high and my shading is hardly visible...
I mean compare this 
instagram.com/p/tQzGsFvowH/
to this
Matter of Time
and this went under so much color adjustments just to make it a little bit closer to the original. =_=;

I've tried adjusting everything in this scanner, everything! Color channels, preferences, went through every corner of it. Unless there is some kinda hidden magical calibration option I'm not aware of... I think I'm lost. >_>; I use Photoshop to import my scanner. I've always used that with my old one too. The old one was pretty good but alas it was starting to give blurry spots and edges of the scans were turning yellow.

So... fellow artists who use scanners, any tips? Any help? Is it the scanner (whelp, it was fairly cheap, I admit!) or I'm doing something wrong here? Any brand you can recommend me which scans colorful works well? Or I just stick to taking photos of my works? :?

I want to return to traditional works more but whenever I do something I'm remotely happy with, my scanner chews the quality and I don't want to show it anywhere. :cry:
