The artistic process in digital art is very much the same as for making other kinds of paintings. -Buffy Sainte-Marie
Pencil & Paper
Even though I consider myself a digital artist, all of my work starts with a pencil and paper. Whether I'm sketching an idea, or trying to formulate one, I always keep a sketchbook handy.

Once I am happy with a rough sketch, I bring it into my computer and refine it with neat lines and a colorful design.
There's often dismissal of artists who use technology to create work, but I see it as another tool that allows me to fully create my visions.
