    From the historical vaults

    Just for laughs I thought I'd post this. If it is out of place or inappropriate I will delete/move it.

    I was looking through some old disks of archived work and came across this, my first digital painting ever. Done in 1995 using an ACECAD plotter and Fauve Matisse software. The ACECAD was 12 x 12 inches, used a serial port had no pressure sensitivity, with a pen that was attached to the board with a cable. Drivers were loaded in DOS and it was an IRQ nightmare to keep it from stepping on the sound or graphics card memory space. At the time it was one of my coolest pieces of hardware.

    The painting is of the Sandia Mountains in New Mexico. It actually ended up appearing on the cover of Digital Video magazine to tease a story on graphics tablets. (Back when DV was an oversized tab like Billboard and had a LOT of pieces about Amigas and Macs and not many on PC video.)

    Maybe there should be a "First Digital Painting" thread started?

    I hope this is framed and hanging on the wall! Lovely, lovely, beautiful, lovely!
    This sounds like an excellent idea-a thread just for the first digital. I have mine. I made it on my daughter's Disney magic artist. I had a parker digital pen. One of the best digital pens that I have ever used.

    Really cool painting Al, it doesn't look 'dated' at all (digitally dated; as in earlier software, limited palette options etc..) at all.
    And yeah first digital painting sounds like a real cool thread! I'd have to dig up my first Corel files that I'd done on a 286 PC and stored on a 5.5" floppy..LOL!!
