Digital vs. Handmade

Gallery Nucleus is having a dragon themed show next month called Breath of Embers, opening October 8th. I'll be showing the original drawing from an illustration commission I did for SooJin Buzelli at Asset International back in August.

This gave me the unusual opportunity to try to execute a piece I finished digitally for print in actual media for the gallery show. I changed the color scheme as it didn't work with the actual pigments.

The original digital composite for print:

Is the original drawing now better than the digital one? It might be. I think the values are better. Dang. The magazine is just out now. Below, the spread from the magazine in context.
