Tony, when I spoke to Doodler, "Dan" on the phone, I had to mention to him one of the things working with comp graphics that these guys know well is making curved lines with a few different tools, forty has this down pat and we all know grafixxman is killer at it.
I commented to him that in his artwork, I rarely find a straight line, his always have bends in them, believe me I've tried unsuccesfully to master this. It takes time and patience, Doodler has it figured out for sure.
I know there are ways all of you could draw an image and have it be fantastic, all it takes is an image and a window with daylight. An old way but early print designers did this for marketing of appliances using a light table.
