Digital touch up huh? Well all's fair in love and art. What you use is just a tool. The image comes from you or there wouldn't be anything there. I plan to get a wacom intuos 4 graphics tablet late this year, or early next, then I am going to give most of my art supplies away and give my wife back her kitchen table. Great Job on this one. Check out the work of Howard David Johnson.
Artist Reply: Oh cool, let me know how you like it, I'm useing an old copy of corel 6 and a bamboo pen pad, nothing fancy realy, I would love to try out some 3d tools sometime. I still kept my folding esil and brushes, and like to sketch still too, but I did give the kitchen table back!
