Fish Fillet Tessellation: McDonalds in Nanakuli HI by sethness Fish Fillet Tessellation: McDonalds in Nanakuli HI by sethness
Please compare this version, hand colored using watercolor pencils
with the version I colored digitally. You can view that version at this link:

Which do you like better?
This is an important question, which may influence how I do my art in the future.

I'm surprised-- but I shouldn't be.
Ten years ago, my host family "mother" in Japan expressed the same sentiment: that the digitally colored version is more appealing than the hand-colored version.

To me, the digitally colored version is simple to the point of looking simple-minded-- flat, like a child would color it.
But... I bow to the weight of the audience's votes: 3 for digital, none for hand-colored.

Interestingly, I find that my buyers come in two flavors: those who want digital formats, for websites and Kindle books, and those who unswervingly want the hand-colored "originals" because they're unique and  can be hung on a wall with pride & without the shadow of the assembly line hanging over it, if you know what I mean.

I also prefer the digital version. I find the hand colored one too busy. The coloring is a bit too distracting.

I prefer the digital version - it's a lot cleaner.
