Re: Albertaceratops pic with quills

I would like to second this.
The fact that the paper or canvas has been switched to a digital screen and the paintings are now controlled through photoshop do not go in detriment of the concept "painting". It is the style and personality what counts. I don't see any difference of this painting with whatever David was doing before he turned to the computer. I don't see a prevalence of the computer tools over his own style.

I don't want to seem too defensive but I'd say the line is blurred :-) Computers are just new pencils as far as I'm concerned. I "hand painted" a great deal of that image. I can send you before and after images from the original CG render to the finished image if you like. Some days I draw with a pencil and sculpt with clay, other days I do both digitally. I've been in this business long enough to know that traditional artists make better CG artists than the other way around. I've always loved the final result rather than the process.

Nice artwork.  Were you seeking criticisms..?

To quote the forum post:
"I modelled the dinosaurs in ZBrush, lit them in Vue and finished the painting in Photoshop."

I'd say the only criticism I'd have is in the use of the word 'painting'. :-)
