well, basically this is a topic to see what people thinks. just say whether you think hand drawing is better, or creating images with a comoputer program or drawing with a computer is better. (cant think of the official name for that, sorry). dont forget to answer the poll!

no, both is not a answer.

i think computer drawing is better.

the lambda symbol is the scientific symbol of all things decaying over a rapid period of time. Or in a different subject, the photographers term of an object moveing so fast it blurs the picture puposefully.

Neither. It's like asking if movies edited digitally are better than movies edited by hand. They can't be compared.

There's good computer art (see Ash) and there's bad computer art (see some of the posts in the Tutorials section). Similarly, there's good hand art (see Leonardo da Vinci) and there's bad hand art (see me).

Anything else is personal preference. :-)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

(oh, and I've seen the first in real life...trust me, this doesn't even begin to do it justice.)

Now, the examples given by both david and uH just goes to prove that it's a matter of person, not form, and david summed this up quite well:

There's good computer art (see Ash) and there's bad computer art (see some of the posts in the Tutorials section). Similarly, there's good hand art (see Leonardo da Vinci) and there's bad hand art (see me).

It all depends on the artist and their skill with that medium.

I personally prefer the computer as my tool as I'm far better on it than on paper, plus, with computer art, it is much easier to edit, re-draw, scrap completely, plagiarise than when hand drawing, but that is my opinion and preference. There was a time when I wouldn't touch the artificial brush of a computer claiming it too unnatural, too mechanical and too easy to accomplish your goals, but now... I wouldn't touch pencil and paper unless truly necessary. It's all swings and roundabouts really; what benefits you lose with hand drawing you gain with computer drawing and vice versa.

EDIT: visa versa (?!) > vice versa. I feel forehead slapping is desperately required.

High five. The voice of reason will win out! :-)

That Optimus picture is pretty amazing, though...

^^^ I was just thinking the same thing...

Why ask this question?

We are know at a point where the target should be taken into consideration... (the target or the aim/goal)

In some case Computed image will be necessary without hesitation.

In the other case, a hand-drawn will bring the needed feeling.

Up to you to decide!

Both IS an answer. Aren't they called tablets?
