|What part of your work do you do on paper and what part digitally?
Lately, 100% of my illustrations are computer generated images.
It always seems the most brilliant ideas come when all I have is an envelope and a golf pencil! I'm getting better and better at making a finished drawing before I move on to the final step--it's made me better at thinking things out, properly.
Usually I start with pencil and paper then scan that in and work in Illustrator and or Photoshop. I also work in Painter when the job calls for it.
The only part of my process that is accomplished digitally is adjusting my rough and tight sketches. It is an awesome tool for cutting, pasting and scaling. I don't however, do the initial sketch digitally. I beleive the best drawings still happen with the hand- eye coordination of pencil to paper.
I'll do base sketches on paper. Fiddle with ideas, layouts, blocking objects and so on. When I get something that makes me "feel" good, I'll scan it into the computer (sometimes) and use it as the background layer of my work so that I don't lose the original concept as I begin to create the digital art layers that will comprise the final piece.
My primary medium is digital.
All paintings are done by hand in acrylic on 100% rag board, canvas or handmade paper. Once scanned I sometimes, though rarely, retouch the art in Photoshop. Then it is imported into the cover mechanical, to be placed with the typography and design of the book cover.
The only thing I do with my work digitally is to scan it and send it to the client. I'm very old school. Though I'd like to find the time to play around with some digital work.
i do all my preliminary sketches on paper and make revisions as required,
then i scan in the drawings and color digitally.
I still draw around 80% of my work on paper, although I do have a Wacom tablet. I just prefer spending time away from the computer. However unless asked otherwise I colour all my work digitally.
Line work is always by hand but colouring used to be mainly digital. The real beauty of the computer is with lettering; working and reworking speech bubbles to get the text as tight as possible.
Most of the work that I do is non-digital. Once I am finished painting or drawing the piece I am working on I will photograph or scan it into digital format, touch it up and send to the client.
I’m a digital artist – there is no paper involved in my work at all. When I develop concepts they're created on screen and they're based on what looks and feels right to me. My drawing and painting skills are extremely limited these days.
Most of my work is digital. I don't get many opportunities to use pen & ink any more.
I create brush marks and printed textures on paper which I then scan and apply to my imagery.
Sometimes very rough comps on paper. The rest...digital.
