Five years ago I told my oldest son that I did not need a computer for any reason. I was a traditional painter… I slopped paint onto paper with a brush… what could I possibly need a computer for? Five years later and I cant finish a job without one.
Here is an example of what a timesaver Photoshop can be for me. My rough sketch (top left) shows my idea for this poster which is basically to repeat the same scene twice. In the old days I would have tediously painted the same picture two times making minor changes to the figure. But now using the computer I was able to paint separate parts of this picture and assemble them later in Photoshop to create two consistent images.
