Hello and welcome to Here Be Creation. I am Nigel Cooney and I will use Deviant Art for fantasy and sci-fi artwork I produce.
Work and Production
I have always and continue to work in traditional paper and media to produce my art. Increasingly however, this is mainly to sketch, draft and work out initial concepts. In recent years I bring these into the computer and digitise them to produce vector and scalable designs for productions and print onto products in high quality and resolution.
I do not see computers as a replacement for design or art, but it is a new and rapidly improving field that can give designers and artists access to many new levels of expression. I also do not see computer aided design ‘a quick fix’, many of my works will take longer in digitising than hand drawn.
If I were to give one reason for digital vector art, any image I produce can be scaled to any size; postage stamp to billboards to huge stadium displays. At no point in the scale will the vector image quality be compromised or pixelated.
