Here are a few projects and sketches done on the PC with a variety of pixel pushing software including Adobe Photoshop, Fireworks, and Corel Painter. After I included a Wacom Tablet and Stylus to my virtual desktop, I was able to sketch and trace my ideas into pixels directly onto the computer without scanning or resolution problems. As I have previously mentioned, the arrival of the digital media has really changed how images are created. Having the ability to layer elements or undo mistakes with a history palette are invaluable options. Still, nothing takes the place of a pen and paper brainstorming.
