The World of Alturas is so much more than words on paper. Since I was very young, I have been drawing sketches of what would one day evolve into Alturas. The early digital art was drawn with a 2011 Wacom Bamboo and Adobe Elements, although later digital art was drawn with Photoshop CC. It was not until early 2018 that I upgraded to a Wacom Intuos Pro, and now use that with Photoshop CC. Older sketches were usually drawn on printer paper (which was easier to sneak into classes in college) with a Dixon Ticonderoga #2 pencil. Nowadays, I use that same trusty pencil brand with whatever sketchbook I can get my frugal hands on. The watermark I created was drawn in Adobe Illustrator CC.
