Okay, that typing handwriting comment made me laugh. Let me ask you something. What’s art anyway? Art is the state of mind while in the creative act. Besides, it is argued by some, similar to Robert Henri, that So it’s a state of being, not the object produced. Boy, these last two posts come a really key time for me. Now I realize it’s not the tool you use, it’s you, yourself and how much work you put into your art is what matters.
Leonardo, or most of the old masters should not jump at the chance to use digital tools in lieu of traditional/old world tools of their time, they should be kidding themselves, So if anyone today would believe for a second that Caravaggio.
That’s the one unifying thing art had. Wacom tablets, whatever, because after figuring it out on their own or being taught/observing how to use computers. A well-known fact that is. Kick you in the head, make you realize what it means to be around a master, sort of art. Actually the ability for others to see what you have created. Cubism, Post Modernism, Armoring, Leatherwork. Found your article while searching for info about my lecture on digital paintings to middle school students. I’m sure you heard about this. It was a lovely article glad I tackled it. By the way, the eye ALWAYS captures the image, key concepts isn’t any more easier just as your using alternative medium.
You can cheat in the digital medium but people can tell when you do.
You can you cheat in traditional like tracing an image and calling it your creation. Using very similar techniques and basics he should if done using actual paints, is he any less of an artist, if van goh took up the digital medium and created. Therefore. While digital creates no true original form but the vision and practices of the artist is of no less value whatever his/her medium, only one difference is that traditional medium creates a physical original which is always of greater value than it’s prints. Anyways, while rendering form, creating rhythm, understanding edges, understanding how an image reads, brushwork/penmanship, lighting, and similar schools of thought, color theory, composition.
I’m almost sure I don’t know what caused this intense percentage of hatred for you, but, holy cow.
Otherwise, you’re will be quite the curmudgeonly and extremely bitter old person in the future.
Back in MY day. Much so that there is not anything anyone here or anywhere can say to change your mind. With all that said… Discussion with you is clearly out of the question. Known I reckon you’re a little over zealous there with your hatred, you don’t necessarily need to like digital art or anything. Make sure you drop a few comments about it. You don’t need to discuss. Remember, you know the type. It’s clear you’re very passionate about your opinion. It is lighten up a little. You just need to assert, assert, assert, and brute force everyone into agreeing with you. Now look. I hope this changes for you in the future. That’s interesting. Get off my lawn!
Very nice reeading! Since we have to survive if we look for to have a job or have food and in addition how to deal with the bad critics or how people blame you for the way oyu di things, makes me think about what new things are coming and how we have to adapt, thanks for this article Dan very inspiring and just one last thing to say pretty much similar to Justin sweet inspired you you have inspired plenty of peopple in identical way so that´s a big price for you man. African painting since 2 years. To the action or process of creating an image, including by non traditional means, it no longer applies solely to paint and brushes. Also, when describing my method, for myself I employ the modifier digital to soften the blow for traditionalists. That’s life in the modern world. Actually, alternatively, in my opinion the term painting has moved beyond the traditional definition. Just yesterday I showed grandpa a picture of his new great grandson on one of them known as smart phones -digital, small screen, and all the bells and whistles of modern crap.
Or at least what art should do to people, I toss in the towel, if that ain’t art. Immediately my grandpa took the phone from my hand and planted a kiss right on the screen. Basically the one thing we struggle as humans with is change. You draw this thought either on paper or a wacom. Very good post!An interesting point to all of it’s that whether I know it’s traditional or digital, it all begins with a thought. It’s not the medium you use it’s the mind and the thought behind the art. What’s the difference? On top of this, some do traditional media to begin a painting and finish digitally. Comparatively in art a few weeks an ago i started doing some digital sculpture for which i continued teaching myself blender, and the response was really negative.
For the most part there’s plenty of emphasis on CAD/CAM in product design and although I’m only one of a few people that use it creating 3D models and getting them 3D printed are really encouraged.
Digital is my media of choice and I have read many comments against it.
There is likely to be a misconception that the software alone is responsible for the art produced, no credit given to the skill and imagination of the artist. Sold out Fine Art for a Dollar and says whatever. We really need to face it, the digital age is here to stay. It’s clear the digital medium made debate, divided opinion and stirred emotions, and to some degree we should all be grateful to those technological innovators for giving us these disparate digital platforms to share our cross cultural views in this democratic way on the subject -and to express ourselves definitely -which can only be pretty nice thing surely. I’m quite sure I don’t know if I’m qualified to make sweeping judgements on whatever And so it’s that constitutes ‘art’ these days, unlike the previous respondent.
Everyone might be having some skills, that are basically hidden inside.
It is good to consider points before hiring an art and creativity teacher.
a decent art and creativity trainer must be able to polish those skills and a single difference is. Whether not, or insecure artists like it On top of that, you still need a fundamental art knowledge to be good at it. The main darkside to digital is how the legacy of the artist will go on once they are gone. Lots of information can be found easily on the web.
This stigma against criticizing terrible art or fraudulent methodology is cowardly and has cost us dearly.
Basically the public isn’t smart enough to see the difference so it’s up to us REAL artists to publicly bash unskilled cheater art.
Often ruining clothes, canvases and going to be made to feel the social pressure of their half measured dishonesty, So if they are arrogant enough to try and paint over their print. Galleries are now full of spilled paint canvas’ sold by snake designers to clueless rich people, retouched giclee prints, and 3rd grader renderings. It’s a well your stylus or mouse isn’t a brush!The 2nd argument is that digital artists require identical percentage of skill and effort to create their work.
Through no skill of their own, they employ an arsenal of trickery and image manipulating software.
Everything is art and that’s just what has happened, if anything is art. While using a fancy brush that requires cleaning and stewardship, airbrushing is NOT cheating the artist is still face to face with his canvas and shaking hand. Therefore an airbrush actually exists. Furthermore, so it’s a total lie. REAL artists could be appreciated and able to make a living, I’d say in case we do this therefore maybe in 50 years. Using a projector isn’t being able to draw, it’s tracing! So this practice builds drawing skills and is simply a crutch like using REFERENCE pictures.
For centuries, artists been faced with the fear of error while they physically wrestle with paint in their shaking hands.
Art is subjective while a person is creating it.
The moment it’s viewed by another person it becomes open to criticism as an object across the globe. They deliberate and sweat over the elements and fundamentals of design as well as the physical process of constructing art as it’s a do or die process. Penciling in contour lines on a canvas or using a grid system to lay out your composition proportionally accurate is NOT cheating. Tracing is fraud! Anyway, both require hand/eye coordination and the ability to approximate where negative space and foreground objects meet. Seriously. Now look, the first is, art is subjective so being that they can immediately ‘undo’ any grave error that should halt or ruin a masterpiece in the making. So, prints are just that, PRINTS, flawlessly dumped out of a printer, not a human hand. You are cheating, if you trace your contour lines. Keep reading. Art that will receive a Din Art 1 is regularly applauded, sold, and given gallery space as well as art that was simply printed out of a machine.
They also have absolutely no hand in constructing the finished product a printer does their job! Look, there’re certainly degrees of cheating but quite a few of them are negligible crutches, not outright fraud. Well I sure do love taking a digital shower and eating digital food. Consequently, how is clicking ‘undo’ and ‘print’ considered equal to REAL brushwork? You see, you have immunity from error and anonymity from construction. They are sick, handicapped artists! You all live in a delusional world and try and convince us of your illusion and petty justifications. Oh I know, wave of the future, get on board with digital, and similar. For example, it requires ZERO skill. You can find more information about this stuff on this website. Without phony tricks, grow up people, stop being lazy and learn your craft the right way, copouts and delusional justifications. Doesn’t it sound familiar? Hmm, that will seem to elevate the means of production over the means of expression for categorisation, that seems a bit odd to me.
Art to me is decision making.
Basically the efficiency does, the decision making and the judgement that comes with it doesn’t change.
Where your first stroke starts and where it end is a decision you make regardless of whether you’re holding a wacom or a brush. Which elements come into the foreground, background, when you decide to use a certain colour over another. Only for the sake of elitism and do tend to come from people who don’t generally paint, craig Mullins and Jaime Jones stand as testaments of people who can cross these bounderies effortlessly, and these sort of comments sound to me as elitist remarks. This is the case. For other artists, it doesn’t really cross my mind whether So it’s digital or traditional. Eventually, good thoughts Lester, Dan and Arnie!
Not in others’ work either, just mine.
It’s much more convenient compared to, say, water colour or acrylic.
Asia mainly prefer digital art over traditional art. People think that traditional art is a thing of the past, and should have been forgotten. Digital art is the main media in commercial illustration, game illustration and even card illustrations. Even whenit gets to physical painting, there’re so many newer tools/ invention that makes life very much easier. Fact, we live in the modern society and technology has advanced. I actually believe it’s unnecessarily unefficient, It’s not as I can’t do it. There’s no need to stick to old methods if they aren’t efficient compared to newer methods.
With that said, this comment had been removed by the author.
It means that artists working in the industry accepted to sell part of their creativity to adjust to industry standard, So if it’s the industry standard.
Therefore in case one day the state of the art may be copyright of masterworks of the past expired, let us start the masterworkbashing madness!, it should be fine as well? Know what guys, I find really depressing to see it defended on a site like MuddyColors with the reason that it’s the future, the state of the art. He is just reelaborating things other people created, because with photobashing one isn’t actually creating. Generally, photobashing requires creative use of other people creativity and i find that very, very sad, while 3d animation and digital painting require creativity. That 3Dprinted sculpture by Eaton was not particularly impressive whatsoever, as a sculpture.
It looks like the kind of printed piece you’d do in doing ‘run of the mill’ action figure creation work of something.
Actually I would beg to differ, about that Eaton sculpture.
It has no captured feeling of life, no dramatic pose, no anticipation of action, no anything to breath life to the piece and inspire awe to the view. As a result, the main drawing point for this piece IS that it was sculpted in ZBrush and 3Dprinted. Now let me tell you something. Otherwise, a pretty basic, straightforward horse, It’s ‘anatomically correct’. Although, it’s not even all that impressively in the detail work. Certainly, one reason people perceive that it is not real art is because of all those 3D imaging software programs out there, where human and animal figures, tubes and cylinders, blocks, infinite urban and natural settings and backgrounds, and similar, are already generated, and the artist merely places them where he wants them. To do anything meaningful, he still must have a command of composition.
It’s as a matter of fact considered a painting.
Given that a work that was complete and painted using a software brush.
It is a print + painting. Nevertheless, making art is hard, if you use a tool that makes it easier, consequently you must be a less capable artist, or cheating, or whatever. For instance, while chastising those who don’t accept those limitations, it’s not about setting up artificial constraints seeing who can win within them. That’s exactly what sports are -a fabricated contest. I guess sports are easier for most people to understand, art is the opposite of that. Art isn’t a test of prowess.
Art isn’t about proving something or setting a record. Pieces created with Wacom tablets aren’t real art. Digital media quickens processes greatly, is definitely more effective, clean and professional, a word illustrators at least aspire to. Oftentimes an illustrator creates throw away work, thats always been the case. Now please pay attention. So it’s an amazing blog. Thanks a lot for sharing. Nice post! Needless to say, all it actually depends on how do not matter what tools to use. By the way I want to say that I do work realistically in illustration, and I look for to just tell you that the realism criticism you’ve encountered had been something in existence forever and always will, and all the time it’s by people who aren’t skilled enough to do, or by people who produce really out there conceptual art, keep on working in hyper realism, semi realism, any realism type, just make it your favourite, before I comment on digital versus art.
I think its misguided int he use of the word art as in my opinion it’s moreso regarding the a matter of skill than art as expression, for more details call us 9873261820 or visit our website really appreciate this article and I believe you are an excellent digital painter, however I can definitely understand why traditional artists don’t accept digital art as real art, albeit there’s a fine line.
Whenever picking colors from swatches is difficult to appreciate, mixing colors is among the challenges of painting and on top of that ends up being a reflection of the individual artist, whereas in digital painting.
Ananya Arts offering wide kinds of Indian Traditional Paintings, Traditional Rajasthani jewelry. Understand composition, and stuff I reckon digital painting can be used as a crutch especially whenit gets to color, while I reckon many digital painters can draw.
Here goes collection of Indian traditional paintings.
With this being said I really have no qualms with digital being art, whenit gets to skill and style I don’t think it makes sense to put traditional and digital style or painting in identical category and I can say from experience Surely it’s more satisfying and gratifying to do hand work than digital, as in my opinion that’s ridiculous as there are a million different mediums people use.
For many people Surely it’s everything and for many old school guys in certaindustries it’s next to impossible to appreciate someone who sits at a computer accomplishing similar than someone with actual hand skills, and art is one of those categories, someone commented above about computers and photoshop being a tool.
It just adds salt to the wound when digital artists try to compare the two when they really shouldn’t be compared.
Every digital painting I’ve ever seen always come across as a very smooth look and generally many paintings end up looking like they’ve been done by identical artist.
While definitely anyone can use any medium they’d like, in regards to skill and style there’s a big difference and I’m not sure that many digital painters should have similar result as if they did it traditionallyI mentioned that I reckon a lot about art has to do with style, and I don’t think one is more of a piece of art the other.or traditional, and I do think digital artists must have more respect for the traditional arts, and I reckon another major problem is that neither sides understand each other being that they don’t share really similar knowledge. Did you hear about something like that before? I do think many digital painters can definitely draw, however I’m not sure many could paint with similar skill or style if it came down to traditionally. Other things contributing to style and an artists are things like line, brush strokes, etcetera and while a bunch of those things can be translated by the computer it doesn’t end up with quite similar result.
One can increase their integrity by buy real Facebook post likes.
Then the page is planning to appear in the top three results and people must be attracted to the page, when keywords are searched for regarding a particular topic.
The second technique is of the use of hashtags which is very popular nowadays to get fans by this interesting way by describing feeling about the page. Third technique is using one’s interest. Now pay attention please. Henceforth, people would’ve been attracted and will visit the page. First is the use of keywords. People tending to have similar interests in the content of page would definitely be attracted to your page. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… Page should come into sight on their timeline and they will see it. So there’re three main marketing techniques which are used for this work. Then, to all painters. Considering the above said. Time has come, and gone. Essentially, you do realize that you are essentially still cave drawing, right? Get real. All you lazy people need to go buy real art supplies and stay out of Best Buy.
Digital is art?
Digital is a joke when it boils down to art.
Call of Duty on Xbox aren’t Marines. Of course, we allow forklifts to compete in weight lifting competitions, right? Yes, that’s right! Whenever playing on your tablet with a stylus, you’re not an artist, you over there. Call out the posers. Save art. However, its called free agency, digital has none. Similar to how dog fighting is a sport? You should take it into account. People who don’t do digital art don’t understand that for the most part there’s an entire encyclopedia required for manipulating digital tools. Basically, thank you for this. With that said, respect all art/creativity wether traditional or digital we all start with a scary blank ‘canvas’. True and points very well made. With that said, this comment had been removed by the author. At first I fought that this post might be about oh digital art as I draw nearly any fucking line by myself as I’m a pro but after that, fortunately it was exactly what it could be, longer version of what Neil Gaiman once said.
By the way I was told in an art history class that when photography first started going into galleries, they’ve been looked down upon since they were copies of an original, to counteract that notion, photographers will destroy the negatives and make a numbered set like for printmaking, while I can’t cite any examples right nos.
Go beyond the boundaries that society sets and come back to tell people about it, That is eventually the duty of the artist.
All it will take in for 2 people to consider that it’s art. My ArtI use any medium to create my art. In my case I’m an experimental artist that has no compunctions about disrupting the status quo. Brobdingnagian auctions and learn precisely what you see. Look, there’re types of the way to get husqvarna little engine elements on the net.
Basically this topic came up, we had a forum at my University today crafts and illustration.
Dan, thanks very much for posting your work, your thoughts and sharing your passion.
Each was interested in the physicallity, the labor and the opportunity afforded in becoming inseperable from the materials in the course of the making. So in case the work is pervasive in ‘natureillustration’ that seeks a viewer who may only view it in small increments of timethe image is king. This is where it starts getting very intriguing. That’s a fact, it’s also important to note that the means by which the work is created relies entirely upon how Undoubtedly it’s viewed and if the artist puts emphasis on the image, the artificact, or both. Let me tell you something. It was an interesting discussion and I had an observation.
Your path is certainly your personal.
Their responses were intelligent and insightful, when a student asked if they would consider doing their work digitally.
Museum or on someone’s wall, the artist is afforded more time with the audience and the artifact is given particular weight, I’d say in case the work is viewed in a gallery. That every of the panel members were driven by an innate connection to the materials that they chose, that, in turn aided in the faciltation of their message. Any new technology seems to threaten the old guard and inspires those looking to create something ‘neverbeforeseen’. Of course don’t get me wrong, By the way I see awesome and inspiring digital images now and then but they aren’t real and when they are printed, they weren’t created by you.
Many of us are aware that there is no reset button in painting or cheat code to get to the trophy.
Painting is earned as THE correct verb for what traditional oil painters do.
Thanks for putting it politely and with some mercy. Normally, my new verb to describe it should be playing. Nonetheless, the new digital is a perversion and insult. Your personality, many people will love your work and some individuals will hate it. Usually, do it, and don’t let anyone ever tell you that you are doing it wrong, if you love it. Just remember. That said, it means you are creating, that is the most important thing that any artist can do. There must always be preferences and people should like different things. You might be like everyone else, if you force yourself into identical box that everyone else is painting in. Instead I smiled politely and let him keep his opinions for himself. Notice, art is art is art is art.
It was the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.
He had no info that I am a professional fine art photographer.
Ironically, photography has always been an incredibly difficult art to master. Notice that that’s what makes the world beautiful, and that’s what makes art so wonderful and personal it’s all different. Just think for a moment. He went on to inform me that as long as I was using a digital camera, that did not make a me a real photographer. You should take this seriously.i find it hilarious that some stranger was hell bent on telling me I wasn’t a real photographer and all I wanted to say to him was, it’s a good idea to tell that to the majority of the people who love and buy my work. There will always be narrow minded people who insist that something different than what they know ain’t real or valid. Ok, and now one of the most important parts. In any circumstances please do not get me wrong, To be honest I agree that film is a LOT harder than digital. So it’s subjective, I know it’s personal, it’s constantly open to interpretation. As long as it’s much harder and they don’t manipulate their images in Photoshop, that real photographers only shoot film.
People ooh and ahh over my work and buy it and hang it on their walls and love it.
You have to work just as hard as any other artist, you’re just using different tools.
For the purists to say, my art as I use a pencil and yours ain’t because you use a Wacom tablet, is the biggest baldfaced lie I have ever heard. As long as for any person that loves my work many of us are aware that there are an awful lot of people that don’t like it really, I’m not saying this to sound vain. With the new wave of digital photography taking over, it’s happening all over again.
That doesn’t make one real art and the other fake.
Good for you!
Excuse me? It means that you are doing something right, if people are hating on you. They are two different tools that offer different ways of achieving things, and that is all. To the people who say it’s not real art good riddance!, with the intention to say that film photographers don’t manipulate their images is absurd what really is a dark room for?he irony of it all is that this man didn’t know who I was. Traditional or digital. Traditional versus Digital is a dumb debate. Accordingly the command of the language of value, shape, edges, colour is present in their work. Pencil is a tool just like a wacom tablet and photoshop are tools. One interesting thing that I bring up when at school currently is that if you were to take a digital painting, print it off on really badass canvas, matte and frame it, essentially make it top-notch it could’ve been, and after all delete the original file, hereafter what does the digital painting become?Does it so achieve traditional painting status?Does it therefore just become a limited print?This kind of thing is a confusing issue for me being that I believe strongly that digital is just as powerful as traditional media, it’s just that -another media really.
Whenever I read this I had to write about it.
Could I swear on it?
Art is subjective, some love it, some do not. Digital or otherwise. Digital does get a bad rap sometimes but So it’s all around us and the great works do stand out. You can read my full response here. Bible on a tablet device still the Bible? Identical comparisons can be used for art. Please share here if you have pictures of this art form! Aboriginal Art dear! Thanks for great information on digital arts! You have any information on that Did you know that the world immediately began a love affair with the daguerreotype, especially in America, where fascination with the silvered plate lasted nearly twenty years.daguerreotype likenesses were regarded as mirrors of truth. What do you think? Basically the artist doesn’t say that she started with a photo. Is it’s value pretty much like a portrait that is produced for a reason of study, skill, and practice? Is that deceptive? My thought is there’s a difference between starting with a photo and embellishing it and painting a portrait in oils, as an example. It’s an interesting fact that the painting resembles the person because The oil painter has learned to use perspective and intuition. That skill set isn’t required, with a digital painting that starts with a photo. We are talking about the tools we’re using today to make art, it is where we’re at. I’d say if it takes the eyes and hands to make, there’s no doubt about it, it’s real art. Like anything that is created by human beings and translated from observation and through hand rendering, i’ve come to realize and agree with Daniel, Undoubtedly it’s art.
It’s interesting to know what artists processes are like, quite a few people are unsure about whether my pieces are traditional or digital and many guess was not real art -they probably also think a bunch of things that aren’t part of their personal experience are also not legitimate. All art is controversial at some point in its lifetime. While being dirty, To be honest I don’t know, the smell, the feel. Even still to this day only 27 and having purchased a tablet at 18, have desire to bring my art to another level as well. Look at Van Gogh, he was considered insane and his works were considered weird and unsalable in his lifetime. Nearly any time a totally new style or new medium has come into play it had been bashed. What you state being that, that new style It’s an interesting fact that the trick towards Undoubtedly it’s not being a master of almost any particular style of it.
It happens in lifetime.
For damn sure, it CAN be.
That can be what slays all of your future dreams. You’ll be appreciated for your meaningful contributions ignored elsewhere. Know your craft. Digital art is as real and as factually sound as drawings/paintings upon paper. Digital Art is just it’s next full fledge saga. Still, give it a full go and seriously investigate it before you bash it. Any real artist will tell you that art IS life. Well, not unless you are a legend. You I do not refer towards older styles being what’s declared passe. Know it prior to expelling negative rhetoric about the art. Still, if that particular new art style/form has a lifespan past the three year mark, so it is declared a relevant piece of work., time + other individuals will drive on past you without any intentions on stopping to dig you up and drag you forward.
It literally develops with any tick of the clock.
It was just a brief phase, if it is nothing more than an equivalent of a ‘One Hit’ Wonder in Music.
In layman’s terms. Make sure you do not fret nor shy away from any art that has fullon attention. Hell, ancient individuals didn’t even have as much as that. You upgrade, So if it upgrades. Heck, you somewhat stated that you did learn about it inside of your post. Hell, you might just think it’s childish. Besides, the trick is to be familiar with it and don’t throw stones towards what’s new. HECK of a lot more if it actually generates a worldwide buzz. Therefore the actual gripe held b the artists whom styles are from yesterday’s times, It’s not the problem of the tool. Anyone whom ain’t keen on at least actually LEARNING how to use the new weaponry are causing themselves to be nothing more than tragedies in the making. No, I’m not saying that YOU neglected to do that part. Yeah, it’ll still cook. Heck, a bunch of them are still equally as relevant today as yesterday, I’d say if not more so. That new style, trend, tool, technique, craft and skill might just end up being the shovel that throws dirt on top of you.
You as it’s new and seems easy, in any circumstances do not turn yourselves into the bullseye for time society to fling shat at. Even more so if it has moderate attention recognition. No, I don’t state that referring towards older art forms. With any real art form, you’ll find heaps of stupidity and the small cluster of brilliance. Though, it won’t have that forthright attention which anyone declared an artist hopes that their work receives. Tremendous respect to you for putting this up. You’ll become portions of the pavement, I’d say in case you don’t upgrade. Not saying it WILL be. Such is true. Art is like a battlefield. Our focus must always be not the medium but the quality. Is that deceptive? My thought is there’s a difference between starting with a photo and embellishing it and painting a portrait in oils, as an example. Is it’s value pretty much similar to a portrait that is produced for a reason of study, skill, and practice? That skill set isn’t required, with a digital painting that starts with a photo. Painting resembles the person, The oil painter has learned to use perspective and intuition.
What do you think? I know that the artist doesn’t say that she started with a photo. Same as writing vs typing, you can edit infinite times, yet only a dime a dozen manage a best seller in digital era. Man, you have no info how irate it gets me when I hear people say digital art is cheating or is not actually art. Thank you for this, for echoing my own thoughts. By the way I was baffled when my teachers and peers looked at digital art with disdain, as someone who also learned first with pencils and paints before moving on to digital art. Not to instigate you completely but you must be irate and I’m glad you are. You claiming you moved on past traditional media is the most amusing thing I’ve read. People never understand hiw intense Undoubtedly it’s and how much they suck. Sorry pal but you’re playing with the biggest handicap in the art world. You seem very opinionated to the point that argument with you must be pointless so I won’t bother.
So in case any in the readers mind, where the argument seems to go wrong for me is this.what is illustration and what actually is the difference, what’s the difference between illustration and art.it seems to me art is illustration, but, illustration is usually not Art with a capitol Illustration goes way back.even the cave paintings have the element of illustration, elegant as it’s. Does Art have another genesis than illustration.in terms of the creative process? Can’t we agree to a terminology that does not lump all artwork regardless of different methods and skills employed. Perhaps that is what leads to such acrimony on both sides. May I approach this from the other side of the equation. As this particular issue sticks in your craw, it very much sticks in mine when people using a format that employs a stylus and a pad as ‘painting’. Please do not call them both paintings, last Supper next to the Super Bros. It’s no disrespect to digital art, that I love, that is amazing, to say Undoubtedly it’s an entirely different medium and requires another name.
