|What part of your work do you do on paper and what part digitally?
If I'm sketching or doing thumbnails or brainstorming new concepts it's usually traditional- pencils, Tombow brush pens on layout bond or copy paper. Creating character art I usually work traditionally, but lately I've switched to Photoshop with a custom pencil brush.
If I'm working online, making overlay corrections to sculpts or visual art submitted by our licensees it's digital, on the Cintiq. I love working traditionally, but digital art helps me to communicate clearly and economically with my clients.
Personal work, i.e. Comic Book Pages, cartoons, etc... are almost always traditionally done, although lately I have been using Photoshop more, especially if I want to get some visual effects in the piece.
I do all of the art on paper and i scan in the pieces and clean up the designs in the computer.
Most of my work is traditional, but I also do some vector art. When I scan in originals I usually touch up some little areas. I touch up the color from the scan too, so it is as true to life as possible.
oh its all gotta be paper or hardboard, then scanned in. not a massive digital fan, although i can respect it as a skill. its not for me though.
I like to sketch the initial idea and if there are characters to design I like to sketch all of these, and normally use gouache to paint them, then scan them in and put it together on the computer and add any finishing touches.
All drawings are done on paper from the sketches to the final inking after that I scan them into the computer and color them digitally.
Mostly I sketch on my Wacom Cintiq, after that I print the sketch and most of the time I ink it with a nr 2 brush on heavy paper on a lightbox. and than back to the computer for some colouring and such.
I always sketch on paper first, then scan it in and eventually sketch some more in Photoshop and a tablet. I always do the line-art and coloring digital with Adobe Illustrator.
I try more to draw on a paper, but ever more customers ask to make something digitally, so provisional 50 % I draw on the computer, 50 % on a paper. From traditional ways I nevertheless receive more pleasures :-)
It depends on what the client wants. I can produce the entire piece digitally, or I can produce it on paper. Generally I do illustration on paper, then fine-tune it digitally.
I always, always, start on paper... even if I then go on to discard all physical work and work entirely digitally. I'll also always give physical work a digital finish... even if it's just to clean up a watercolour splodge mark. When I begin a new project, I know my work always begins and ends with the same processes, but what will go on in the middle is something I'll work out along the way.
It's all on paper. I'm aware that pixels are the way forward, but I just really like the tactile business of crayon on paper.
Of course I forget that romantic hogwash, the moment I make a tiny mistake and have to start again instead of clicking 'undo'.
Everything but the colouring process I do on paper. The line-work, toning, background, shading... all of it is done traditionally with pencil to paper. After I feel the pencil version is complete, I'll colour it on the computer with the outlines often being emphasised with digitally coloured outlines.
All digital...give me a piece of paper and I am worthless (sadly!)
Concept sketching is often done on paper. But all final work is digital - from 'ground' up.
