My name is Jerry Emerson and I am a digital caricature artist. Most people by now know that a digital artist draws on a computer. What they may not know is how they do that. First, they use special tools. Instead of a pen, brush or pencil, the digital artist uses an electronic pen stylus and pad, although some prefer drawing directly on the computer screen. The digital artist’s canvas is a calibrated computer monitor.
In effect, the digital artist manipulates the arrangement, brightness, hue, and saturation of pixels, having a phenomenal palette of 10 million colors to work with, more if a 10-bit monitor is used.
