There's no "I like to doodle" forums here, but photographers might have some experience here that I very much do not.

I have a few scans that I would like to get digitized but my old (really old Cannon) scanner is now broken. I've played around with a few other scanners, like the one in my printer, but they all fail to scan the low-contrast line work that I tend to have a lot of in my illustrations. Bumping up the scan resolution hasn't helped with just about every scanner I've tried, it's as though they either ignore the fine/ light pencil or simply cannot capture it.

Has anyone got any recommendations for scanners that have very good captures of low-contrast, and partially reflective (it is graphite, after all) media?
