I have been hesitant about going digital for a couple of reasons.
1. Most of my favorite illustrators haven't done a great deal of digital work. They tend to be more traditional.
2. I don't want my illustrations to look like some video game or PBS kids TV show.
3. Photoshop is super intimidating!!!
However, I have found that most illustrators use Photoshop these days and I've been meaning to learn how to use it for quite sometime. My mother finally sat me down yesterday and took me through some of the basics. To my surprise I found Photoshop to be a lot of fun! This illustration is a result of my first attempt to do digital artwork.
