This One's for MAC...

25 comments
It's been a while, but MAC pestered me and eventually shamed me into posting something -- thanks bud!

I have to admit, I'm so old school I like drawing with the centuries old pen nib and ink. I trained this way years ago, and at one time in my various past lives as a freelance artist I used to do ink drawings for the Los Angeles Times Syndicate -- with my drawings appearing in over 52 newspapers throughout the country. But, that was back when Prince first crashed into the music scene, and Nintendo had just come out with their first games. So, as you can tell that was a long time ago.

But, let's face it, who wants old school illustrations -- right? So, I decided to push this drawing into the technological world of the 20th century and add a little color using my Wacom Tablet and Photoshop 7.0.

Use the tool that you use, your talent flows through it. Hi Marcelo, congratulations for this work, it's dynamic and expressive as always... it looks great! Saludos!

You could not be any more inspiring my friend. It must be hard waking up in the morning and having these things ooze out of your fingertips.

Top notch. Top drawer,

MAC

I agree with Antonio, who cares the tool, it's the hand behind the tool. I still prefer your "old school" drawings so far if you ask me. Cheers!

lindo trabalho,Marcelo

Marcelo Vignali said...

Thanks everyone for your kind words.

Henry, Simon-r you both know me and got the joke. Thanks.

Antonio, Cuoacomekiki, you're are right. I was listening to Miazaki explain why he got rid of all the computers in his studio. He said it made bad artists worse.

Adam, I'm glad you're hooked, you made my day.

Marcos, I'm glad you enjoyed Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. It was fun to work on.
