neither i,but that's my crazy "personal" choice (till now):-)
i'm still thinking that it's not the right time for me to dive into the computer world yet,i have to learn the "masters" tricks first,this what thousands of years of human (cultural/artistical)evolution had taught me,anyway this is an off topic issue now by returning to the main debate,i think personally that art this human heritage of (mental/psychological)interaction with (surroundings/space) was based on this acceptable traces of human "touch",the human "error",i mean by "error" this imperfectness, the human copy vs the machine copy
the hand drawn sketches vs the accuracy of a camera,this DIRECT contact moment of creation between (eye- brain- hand-pen- paper),you said it ,its like constructing the thing yourself,it's a sacred moment of creation that any real artist will know what we mean by that,no wonder that art especially was most of the time related to religion to the respect of the Almighty ,and even in the exceptional cases when drawing was prohibited in some religions (especially animal & human drawing)it was a leap towards radical abstraction the voluntary refusal to the so-called imitate god, to repeat his moment of "original creation".
these points what i was trying to show it in my debate with (bsp),your DIRECT human(interpretation/translation) from the eye of the observer to a "primitive" media(a paper),because you can never estimate or guess exactly when it's the right moment of creation,for your own little tiny human miracle with its lovable traces of human "error"!
that's what make two great Renaissance genii( Michael Angelo & Lionardo) differs in their genial human talent ,their personal human touches
can computers will enhance in the future this symbiotic relationship?
