I like the coloring, but the delineation between dark and light in the shading looks wrong, to me. But, I'm not any kind of expert in Traditional, so take that with a grain of salt.

It's very likely due to the scanning. I had a hell of a time scanning it and getting the colours even remotely close to the original. For some reason, it kept scanning with absolutely wrong colouration. I turned off the "auto tone" and it scanned in so light it looked like I had the brightness turned all the way up. It literally took me about twenty minutes to get the colours close.

Needless to say, the original looks better. :/

Could be. Auto tone usually does skin-tones, I think.

Do you have the correct color profile for your scanner in Windows?

Yeah, it just has a mind of it's own. *grumbles* It's about six, maybe even seven years old. I think it's just the scanners way of saying, "D@mn3d kids, get off my lawn!".
