|What part of your work do you do on paper and what part digitally?
I sketch in pen and ink, then scan my drawings in and colour them in with photoshop. I also like collecting and scanning patterns and textures to digitally collage in my work.
Regarding the comic, it's 100% digital. I used to use a tablet, but now that I bought a Cintiq, the whole thing is 100% digital and spans over two programs. I still doodle and draw on paper when I get the chance, though. Nothing beats the feeling of a #2 pencil on paper. =) ♥
Well in the last two-three years I've been doing more digital work than traditional, but even though I've been doing more digital work I always sketch out my designs on paper first, then scan them in and work from those. My sketches actually take up quite a bit of time because I like them to be close to what I want the final product to look like before I scan them. Before I started doing more digital work I did almost all of my work traditionally and then scanned the finished piece in to translate it into a digital file.

The majority is created by hand. My work is predominantly collage based, and I love the actual cutting and sticking side of creating the illustrations and always incorporate a wide variety of materials, papers, patterns and textures in my work. This would be lost if I created my work using entirely digital methods, and it would also take all the enjoyment out of creating it - the fun part is scouring magazines for a scrap of paper in the perfect shade of blue, cutting out impossibly tiny shapes, and having hands covered in glue! I only use digital methods during the latter stages of creating an image - I scan each collaged element separately and use my MAC to edit out any flaws, and to play around with the final composition. I find this useful as it allows a fluidity that wouldn't exist if the images were composed by hand - I can easily try out different layouts, experiment with backgrounds and move things around until I am completely happy with the final image.
I do pencil roughs and black inked lines on paper, and sometimes colour manually. More often i scan in the black lines, and colour these images on Photoshop.
Lately all aspects of my work have been digitally created.
From rough sketched to final art.
Generally though I prefer to work out my concepts and layouts on tracing paper.
I normally do little thumbnail sketches of a couple of concepts.
Once I have chosen a concept I will do a more refined layout either exact to scale of the final piece or if possible a little bigger.
Once the line art is complete I either burnish the line art to the canvas and then start painting. Or alternatively if I am doing a digital piece I would scan the line art and work in whatever package I needed (ie Painter, PhotoShop or Illustrator)
I do the entire illustration traditionally and then touch it up and add a border and watermark digitally.
All of my drawings are on paper.
pencils roughs..then ink with brush and india ink..
then color with photoshop ...
or finish in illustrator from sketches.
All my sketches are on paper. I feel totally free on paper and still restrained on the computer. My clients still wants my traditional work, but I'm starting to do more work on the computer
illustations are sketched individually on paper, scanned into photoshop and colored digitally. I sue photoshop to add text if needed, to reposition characters and other background elements, and to add different effects with the various filters.
All my sketchbook work is on paper....everything I do commercially, is 100% digital these days.
I do about 90 percent of the work on paper and have lately been working on textures in Photoshop.
Most of my work is executed using traditional media although I recognize that being flexible and proficient in Digital is equally important. Rarely does a client take delivery of the artwork in its physical form. That being said, I have to be proficient in digital media on order to translate the artwork into a usable format for my clients.
