I was messing around with Photoshop tonight, playing around with some brushes, and this is what I came up with. Why paint in Photoshop? Well, it's very convenient for print work. If I had an illustration gig of some type I would almost certainly do it digitally. Production and delivery in one tidy package. The only thing lacking from doing work digitally is a physical end product. So to me if feels kinda cold.
There is a speed advantage as well. Where real paintings that I've done on this site take many hours, multiple sessions over days, this took about an hour.
