As much as I love working in traditional media, there is also something fun and amazing about painting and working digitally. It requires less preparation and clean-up, less in material costs, it is often faster (at least compared to the excruciating dry time of oil painting!) and you can achieve amazing results. It is also perfect for combining with traditional skills. All of my comic work, though inked by hand, is cleaned up and colored using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I choose what methods I use based on the needs of the projects I work on and I know that they are equally worthy of admiration.
