Digital Art?

Standard

Hmm, digital art. I’m kind of divided about it….I think the technical effects are very good, and there is a lot you can do with it, but….its not *real* is it? I mean, I did this on my little tablet, using an art app called Sketch Guru. Its fun to use and I love the simplicity of this sketch.

But I can’t make this then hang it up. I mean, there isn’t even any skill involved. I used my finger and drew a few lines. The app did the linework and the shading.

Now don’t get me wrong – I’m not bashing digital artists, but…..when you have to press buttons or click effects to make art, I think you lose the soul of it.

Do I sound grumpy this morning? Apologies if I do. Its freezing cold – minus degrees outside and its almost half past nine in the morning. I need more coffee. And a duvet 😀

  1. I know what you’re saying about the digital/button pushing aspect taking something away from the ‘art’ of it all, but I must disagree when you say that there isn’t any skill involved. This non-drawer couldn’t come up with any of the three sketches you just shared.

    Stay warm! It’s hard to scribble/doodle/cut and paste (with glue and scissors) with cold fingers!
