Here's what I've been painting on for the last several days. I always want to skip out on the color comp but it really does help to move things faster if I know exactly how dark or saturated an area of the painting is going to be. It also allows you to preview and adjust the juxtaposition of colors and get all the mistakes out of the way without compromising your final panting. Plus the digital comp moves fairly quickly and definitely saves time in the long run. Esp. since a friend of mine gave me his old wacom tablet. It's a nice improvement from the mouse:)
Some people feel that there's no room for spontaneity when you use photo ref or have all your color/value comps. However, I always seem to have plenty of opportunities for spontaneous goodness:) My name is Eric....and I use color comps.
