Digital Traditional Art

Some artists have a certain disdain for digital art techniques, as opposed to traditional art techniques. I appreciate both and like to use both by starting with a traditional sketch or painting, scan it, import it into the computer, then manipulate it in different ways (size, contrast, color, etc.).

This is an experimental piece that started as charcoal and oil pastels on newsprint, 14" x 18". The final version is 28" x 32" on paper, canvas, aluminum, or whatever medium I decide at a later date.
