Many of the artists & designers of todays Digital Paintings & Illustrations get their heritage from traditional artistic mediums. However, with today's technology, you're able to take your ideas to more vibrant and effectual levels that know no bounds. Regardless of your preference of motives to paint or illustrate, you'll have the tools to achieve that which lies within your mind. You'll amaze viewers with everything from surreal creatures to epic sceneries that you would never be able to see in your wildest fantasies.
Digital Painting & Illustration is a very attractive area, regardless if you do it for your own sheer enjoyment or if you aspire to attain a career within the Entertainment industry.
I will be picking several submitted arts on Shadowness within this field to both inspire and boost recognition among the artists here on SN. If you wish you give me tips on paintings or illustrations you've found, do not hesitate to contact me at /martin on Shadowness!
I also wish to let you know about a new group that has been started. It's purpose is to be a gathering zone for tutorials/walkthroughs, articles and features of artists, basically anything that is related to the area of digital paintings.
Glad you guys like the picks and you're very welcome for being selected :) We have a bunch of nice artists and it's great to be able to showcase some of them on a weekly basis. I hope to see more great submitted pieces! Make sure to follow the /digitalpaintings if you're interested in a source for tutorials etc related to this area, as of yet.. there's not much in there but i'll make sure to change that. Thanks guys and keep on rocking
