Technology Vs Talent

I link you know to a man that has earned my respect

This was drawn using Ms paint, and over 500 hours of dedicated work

there's a lot of people out there using various graphics programs, Adobe Photoshope is the second most pirated piece of sofwar,e next to Ms windows itself, statisticly.

most "serious artists" would scoff if you even mentioned MS paint in a graphics program discussion. many would laugh outright, and mock you.

but here you can see the results of his work. this man has an awfull lot of raw alent, he admits, that he re-touched the photo with some PS generated blur effects, but the rest is done free-hand.

I'm not saying that we should all ditch our favorite softwar,e soem of us (me especially) dont have the sort of natural talent to make that possible. but I do think that sometimes it's nice to take a step back and appreciate things we somtimes take for granted. To remember the Roots of our "craft" and tip our hats to the people who still do things the "old fashioned" way
