What is Digital Painting?
Well, the short answer is its a painting! A typewriter does not write a play, and contrary to popular belief a good camera does not compose and edit a good photo.
Just as pencils or brushes are artist's tools, a digital tablet and stylus with unique brushes are tools to paint.
Is it REAL art? Yes!
Isn't it just a filter, pushing a button?
No! digital Paintings can take hours, days or months. Some artists trace designs- I prefer to start from scratch on physical paper with graphite, then import and paint digitally. check out part of the process below:
