I was recently posed the following question:
"Just curious because I have never used Photoshop and you said you use it, but why use it? You said you sketch out and ink the drawing yourself. What does using Photoshop do exactly for your drawings? Does it help generate designs or do you do that yourself? ... Does it help with colors? That is an area I'd like to improve with but have been using the traditional markers, colored inks and colored pencils. Sorry about all the questions but am trying to improve using what little resources I can so any advice would be great. Thanks and again..."
I thought this would make a good discussion ... an opportunity for all the ComicVine artists to chime in what materials they use and why.
