DISCLAIMER!

I did a "tradigital" drawing two years ago which is not for this contest. Please don't include this in the contest and I didn't enter twice!

Moving on!

This is a piece representing how I view both traditional and digital art. For me, the two are pretty much interchangeable because I use the same underlying fundamentals for both. I used to be stubbornly stuck to my traditional media and refused to move to digital, but I soon realised how much freedom digital tools gave me and allowed me to create much more ambitious pieces faster, and what I learnt through digital media bled influence straight back into my traditional works.

In this case, digital tools became the second wing that I needed in order to fly.

This is a dragon with stained glass wings. In each shard is a drawing that I have done in recent years and you can zoom in to see them. The orange wing is entirely traditional works while the blue wing is entirely digital works.

Here is the process of the piece being created.

This is outstanding, I really love the concept of the different artwork being reflected through the wings. Incredible.
