digital art is nice, but it has limitations and it just doesnt compare to paint and canvas art. digital art just sucks the human touch of life right out of it in my opinion.. Digital art is just completely unappealing to me.. although some is kinda cool. Digital art takes know-how. Traditional art takes know-how AND talent. :)
at least here there are only good artists. I know that paintbrushes, cameras and computers are all tools but i dont feel the same connection to a work I've made mechanically.Maybe we're old fashioned??!
I've thought several times lately about withdrawing my work from SN because my work seems so inferior to everyone else here, but then i realised I'm comparing apples to oranges. [metaphorically] Digital art is created in this digital medium whereas traditional art is created in the physical world. I feel traditional art often doesn't translate very well into this format as a large part of the experience is missing; online you can't touch the work and feel its texture, you can't see it in different lights and experience all its moods, you can't move around it and view it from different angles and, perhaps most importantly you have no understanding of its size. The size of a picture affects the impact it has on the viewer and contributes to its overall impact. There's no getting around this though, I guess. It is a digital world and we'll just have to adapt I guess, the question is how??
It all depends on the individual's creative level. you can create beautiful art no matter what tool you use. Digital and traditional have their benefits, is in the artist to bring out the light of each one
I am currently working on a series of videos featuring my dolls and sculptures - essentially using stop motion. A couple of days ago, a friend sent me a link to the 3D animation program, Blender. I looked over it, and, yes, the possibilities and potential results are pretty cool - very smooth and slick. But since it is all digital I baulked, hence will continue to create physical works and use stop motion .
I have dabbled in both digital and traditional media; I feel a stronger personal connection to traditional tools although I can easily replicate my own style in digital media. I don't think that digital art is the "future" of art, nor do I consider myself--or anyone else--an inferior artist because of this preference. :) I do appreciate the "undo" feature of digital art as well as the fact that--besides electricity--I am not using any additional resources or generating wastes when I create. I do love to oggle the slick, seamless works created by talented digital artists, but the raw, visceral power of traditional work tends to stick in my brain much longer than those creamy digital delights ;)
Digital art looks great, though the rise of digital art made me afraid to showcase my traditional art, for it never seemed refined enough when compared to digital works.
Add to that my inability to make anything digital, really, and that is what kind of made me lose the will to further my drawing/painting/sculpting skills.
