Malc, thanks for the comments. I have seen your art on the forum. Nice work. You are right, the computer will test your patience. I swear at mine on a daily basis and have come close to punching the monitor. Thankfully there is command x.

Deliveryman, That is really awesome artwork.

I would love to see them in wireframe form, I have always used Corel Draw and Photoshop for my artwork but that looks really crisp compared to bitmaps.

I just don't ever get the time to retrain my brain to work in vectors only.

Maybe I should though looking at them images.

Keep up the great work.

Craig

Just curious, but I've noticed that a large number of people doing this kind of work use a Mac. I've never used one, is there a big advantage to a Mac over a PC when doing this stuff? One reason that I have trouble learning it, is that I can't look at a monitor for long without eye strain and headache. I've tried changing all the settings, and even switched to LCD, but no luck, if I spend a couple hours on photoshop or something, I'm going to bed with a headache, add the brain strain of trying to learn a program at my age and it's a double whammy, maybe it's just me. Anyway, I'd love to be able to do it. Again, nice work!

Craig, thank you for your thoughts on my art. I think you are right that vectors lend themselves to a more crisp image. Fortunately, I used to do this by hand using rubylith and sheets of half tone to do the color separations and using a vector format is exactly the same except on a computer.

Roddinron, I use a Mac only because I was told to by friends in the graphics industry. I have a PC in my office but have never tried to do graphics on it.

Here is a thought on you headaches. If you wear glasses you may want to check into a pair for working on a computer. I wear bifocals but my computer glasses are not and are made for looking at a surface about 18 inches away. Plus, they are great for working on the car.

thanks for the reply, that is what I've noticed, that people in the graphics industry seem to rely heavily on Mac for their work.
Ya know, I hesitated to even post a whiner post like that. lol I think you may be right, I think that my glasses have a lot to do with it, and will check on some regular reading glasses with an anti glare surface. I've tried some off the rack reading glasses without much success but I suspect it's probably due to them not being prescription. It's hell gettin' old ain't it (though it probably beats the alternative) Man, did I take this off subject!

I use a PC for my artwork because I started out years ago with Corel Draw4 and have taught myself how to do what I do.

I find Corel a much more user friendly program than Illustrator as the tools just make more sense to me.

I was also told to go get a MAc but that was long after I taught myself how to use the PC and Corel Draw. The learning curve takes all the fun out of Illustrator when I know I have an easier way to do things than sit and muddle through another graphics program.

I also use Photoshop for all my separating of plates etc.

I still would like to learn some of the basics of how you do your work Deliveryman. Are there any downloadable tutorials that you know of?

Craig

Try an Adobe Illustrator search on google, there seems to be a lot of sources there.
