Man, I love digital. I'm lovin Painter. I can erase, and redraw, and fix, and tweak, and the paper never wears out. I've probably erased this guy's legs 5 times, and his face half a dozen, working the lines, fixing the proportions, tweaking it to be what I want. It's so freeing. And I have a seperate layer where I can dabble with color schemes. The grain of the simulated watercolors, and being able to erase and refine it opens up a whole pantheon of ideas!
This guy is not even close to being done. I'm still working on cleaning up some of the lines. But the ability to shade parts, and look at the overall composition really really helps. And I'm happy with where the linework is starting to go.
Overall, I'm loving this 21st century medium! But my mom will probably say it's not real art, like SF books are not real books...
