    I just got in a cheap Wacom knockoff (my 2003 wacom is pretty much on its last legs) and wanted to give it a try. Here is what I came up with in about a minute of testing.

    I had to get back about three feet from screen to see it. Nice sketch Bob. Perhaps you are the artist that you seek for your new MM logo ?

    Here is a quick traditional drawing with a 4H graphite and then darkened with a HB graphite. Unfortunately I don't have an eraser at hand so it is as it was drawn. I would rework the mouth as it's off a bit. This was drawn on a comic book backing board.. because I don't have traditional art supplies anymore (outside of my pencil set).

    Here's another quick sketch of Batman. You can compare the two of the digital and this.

    Again no eraser so i can't rework it right now. SO lines are all over the place and the jaw isn't lined up right.

    Energy shifted when you went to hand drawn.....more "energy" in there.

    The digital drawings almost feel cold if that makes sense. These traditional graphite pieces are warm feeling.

    Like we talked about, I think there is an energy that goes thro the hand onto paper in art. The difference between seeing a painting on line vs. in person. There is a difference in "feel" to anything that has that energy transfer directly from hand to paper. Living energy to living energy...as paper is a product of trees and life.

    I may have to rename this thread "The Spirit within Drawing"...we are now doing research as to energy transfer!
