A Classic DreamLight Digital Painting by Michael Scaramozzino
Michael Scaramozzino created this DreamLight Classic digital painting in 1989 at the dawn of the digital illustration era. This was at the time when color computer graphics systems were still in their infancy. He painted this image entirely by hand with a Summagraphics drawing tablet on a TG-II 640 x 480 pixel 8-bit color paint system. The CGI painting was created as a promotional piece for the DreamLight studio. The subject of the promotional project was to create an image as if it were a frontispiece for a fictional fairy tale. This was partially undertaken as an exercise that would be more creative than the typical product illustrations and logos that we were doing at the time.
This DreamLight Classic digital raster painting is also available on posters and merchandise.
