Harry, if you read this, do you use that wacum (forgive the spelling) pad? I have seen and heard you need one to do this type of work, but Iam doing some work for a printing company where they don't have one. Most of there stuff is manipulated photos, but I am sure they would have to drawing some thing some time. Just wondered if this would help me on the computer.

I went back to the mouse, and now I've gotten so used to doing things that way that I'll never go back to a tablet again. However, that's not to say they're not any good...just not my thing. It's all about what you yourself feel comfortable with and are used to. You might like the tablet. If you have a chance to try one out sometime, I'd say definitely give it a shot.
That being said, though, I still think that the hand-drawn look is terrific. Why try to recreate that look digitally when you can create it the "real way"?
My style is photo-realistic, so Photoshop allows me to do things much easier than doing them by hand. With Photoshop I don't have to mix paint, apply and cut frisket masks, clean out my airbrush, worry about paint bleeding under the frisket, or ever run out of a color. But if I were to do an illustration in your freeflowing, hand-drawn style (which I have done many times in the past), I'd ditch the computer and do it by hand!
Digital is definitely worth a try. But don't give up on the hand-drawn stuff.

Those are incredible
Kind of what the new PC (ugh) Tablets are like now.
You can draw right on the image.
There is a new MacBook conversion that is supposed to fantastic, about 2K for the base model.
Very cool drawing!!!!
Now, BUILD IT!!!!

Gregg- Your not joking about the price. Even those Wacom tablets arent' cheap. By the way, the finished car is in the "Under Glass" section.
