Old School vs. Hi-Tech

Comparing “old school” actual hand drawn sketch with “hi-tech” graphic tablet sketch. Both done in about eight to ten minutes, from reference.

The overall sketch is much better; but I’ve been using pencil on board for decades; this process is almost second nature.




The lion I posted a couple of weeks ago, is sketched on the tablet. It’s okay, but not as nuanced as the pencil. This is where the phrase; “practice makes perfect” comes into play.

But that’s the crux of it; more work.

Which is what I need to do right now.

Lemme know when it’s time to go home, will ya??!
