I'm Jumping on the Digital Bandwagon
posted: March 30, 2006
I'm frankly tired of washing my hands. I'm getting into this digital thing. Bigtime. All kidding aside, here are some recent sketchbook quickies that I colorized in photoshop. I'm digging the rough quality of the sketches with the soulless colorization of photoshop.

Hey Hal, Everbody's doin' it why not you?! It makes sense from a professional sense; not sure about the artistic sense. I love your stuff as is -not that that should matter. I'm sure Rich Goldberg has some constructive ideas for combining handmade and digital. Suggestion you've probably thought of: I've always found Painter to be better than Photoshop at "natural" style painting. Baby steps.

Howdy, Hal- It's a pleasure to share this blog with you. All year long, Maggie and I walk past your calendar hanging on my studio door & so you're on our minds every day. After several years of this, I begin to feel like some kind of pervert. Still, keep the calendars coming. The analog/digital art looks good. I do miss that nice, raw, ragged watercolor wash, but you're right, the scanned inked-in line up against the smooth, mechanical digital tone, does work. Very nicely. I'm still doing my illustration the old, fartsy, geezer way, but I have been using lots of computer software for my animation projects. We live in a very exciting time. Anyhow, it's good to be onboard the Drawger Express. See you around. -Elwood
