Ding, ding, okay I get it.
If you start an artistic journey looking to create an exact replica of something, in theory, why not just use a printer?
I see where you’re coming from.
But, I still think it comes down to the fact you can say “I did that by hand.” Maybe not all with recognition from others, but personal fulfillment.
I know if I could draw something like that, I’d be so proud of it.
