Finally there is an affordable 11 x 17 scanner/printer on the market. I recently purchased the Brother MFC-6490CW "all-in-one" -- and am very pleased with it. Cost was around $200 (after a rebate from Office Depot). I wanted to see if I could print "blue lines" on bristol board for inking, so I scanned this great Jack Kirby piece (from the "Kirby Unleashed" book) and printed it in blue (well, cyan, if you want to get technical) on 200 lb. Strathmore smooth bristol. Some other artists have reported not being able to run bristol through the printer -- but I've done it multiple times now with no problems. After printing out the test blue line sample, I couldn't resist inking it! So here's my take on "Bullseye."
