I like to use digital drawings (Photoshop, Paint, Microsoft Office Picture Manager……. ) to modify my sketching until the final pictures are more presentable to public…….

What the artists want to show the world on their visionary pieces is more important, regardless of the tools used.
If Photoshop is available to Da Vinci, he would use it to create other masterpieces that were not possible with paint and brush. Of course, he may still continue to use paint and brush…. Each has his own preference at times.”
