I sketched this girl the other day and decided to use the computer to have some fun with the background. Do these stripes look familiar? Last month I posted the picture below with a girl painted directly onto the stripes but beforehand I scanned the painted book page into my computer.
Photoshop Elements allowed me to add the stripes to the background of my newly sketched girl. Do you use digital manipulation much with your art? Do you consider it cheating since that actual piece doesn't exist anywhere outside of my computer (or if I print it out)? Can it be considered cheating if I painted/sketched each piece though and then morphed them together?
I'd love to know your thoughts on this. . .
