Digital paintings. Art or not

Postby dale cogan » Mon Jun 08, 2009 8:33 am

I am submitting a digital paintings, and i'd like your opinion. Many people don't see this as art, and just dont respect it. It takes time and creativity just as a traditional painting dose less the mess. I am wondering if i should quit and just go back to oil canvas painting. for now this style of art is all i can afford, but if need be i will start saving up to buy more oil paints and canvas.

Of course it's art. Digital is getting more and more respect in my opinion. Did you look in members' galleries? There are lots of beautiful digital artworks here, and yours are a fine addition. I absolutely love your second and third picture. Keep doing what you're doing, and sooner or later you'll get the recognition you deserve.

I agree with Erika.
Even though I don't do digital...I would think it takes an artistic eye to be able to balance a composition, create a rendering that is harmonious in color and choose a subject that interests and captures the viewer's attention, and do all that well takes ability. And IMO...you've done all of that and alot more!
My fav is the second.

Dude, Digital Art can be even harder than canvas, because when that blue screen of death comes up and you haven't saved in a while... HAMMER TIME.
I do speak from experience, lol

I love the first picture, it's very creatively composed, and I love the colors and movement.
I use Adobe Photoshop 7. What program are you using?

WHAT IS ART?

Postby nigelartist » Thu Jun 11, 2009 5:11 pm

WOWOWOOWOWO! A BIG UN!

I love your work. The woman is lovely. The wine is too realistic and is almost a photo...and that it is art too.

My defintion of art, music, cheese sandwiches or whatever.

YOU EITHER LIKE IT OR YOU DON'T.

Simple.

Ok. The CREATION OF ART is different.

But we are creating for others to say YES or NO to whether they like it.

Im going to play devil's advocate. Yes and no! In your case, yes! There are many top quality digital artists out there who push the envelope when it comes to art. It's the beauty of painting with a safety net... If you mess up, just Ctrl/Alt/Z outta trouble or reload from your last point.

However... there are many digital artists who think scanning a photo and adding some generic filters constitute art. I guess they do to a degree. But there's something lifeless, something lacking in creativity when this happens. I suppose there's a difference between computer art (Art created by some filters and button pressing) and digital art (using the computer as a tool to push your imagination and take your talent further).

That's my pennys worth.

Works great BTW!
