Hi DMjones,


You can find the start of my write up at my blog link at the bottom of my signature.


No not that i can find. Its mainly focused on individual products, and not in the perspective of a designer. Also i wanted to compare all three tools as it makes sense for a designer thinking about options.

Dave, good to see you here.


I voted for traditional media, but I think I'm fairly regressive in my thinking- I've given up on markers for watercolour.


Have been experimenting more with Photoshop lately, I like the fact you can sketch on a layer, then turn down the opacity and keep working it up on subsequent layers, like an underlay. And holding down shift before using the brush tool is the most significant discovery I've made....


I've made a journal, mainly for my own use, to work through the possibilities of various media as visual communication devices- I'll send you a link. Here's my first ever wholely digital sketch:



Cheers bro, Nick.
