Yup.. I see the difference. You have the new skin. I keep the classic because it shows me every time someone posts a new post. If you look at the classic skin you will see what I see.. and why I was wondering what the difference was
l8 on topic but yeah i agree with meli and have to say was kind of offended too since people tend to dismiss digital art very quickly since its on the computer
the computer did all the work but its basically the same principals just there is so many more ways to shove and change pigments..
well and its called pixels instead of pigments but yeah you simulate traditional drawing but at almost no cost. you dont have
to buy paint and brushes and such for studies.
this was my 3rd acrylic painting ever and i did it w/o reference and how much knowledge can you have about the medium
with 3 paintings ever made? it turned out rather well and thats due to my experience with digital art. so at least for me personally
i know that digital and traditional art are related and not that far away. its really just the medium "pixel" is so much more flexible ^^
when i post traditional stuff on fb for example ppl would send likes like its a meme but when i post a digital artwork its just ok to them
since in ppls mind they see it like you just put a sticker on a foto and thats that.
That being said, I think there is a bit of a stigma for digital artists out there because in the back of their minds people know that a photoshop image is beautiful but was done by the computer more or less. Many people do not realize that you can do original paintings and works this way.

While I understand that's how people see it Susan.. the computer DOES NOT do all the work. Well.. yes.. you can get some programs that will extract lines and manipulate them for a desired effect. But when I paint digitally.. I am doing the work.. holding the pen.. moving my hand the way I want the pixels.. choosing the color. I believe that's how Meli works as well and why she is upset.
We aren't talking about photoshopping something with a preset. We are talking about creating something fresh on a digital processor. There is really NOTHING different than sketching with a pencil or pen.. or doing an oil painting (Yup.. the programs we use actually make the paint flow the way it does in life.. so you need to know how to use the paints, Palette knife, etc)
In fact, even photoshopping an image takes skill! It's not the computer that sees where the corrections need to be made (in fact.. the computer is really pretty poor at this compared to the human eye). It's not the computer that makes the changes needed.. it only makes it possible to make those changes.
Wow.. it sounds like I was being defensive there for a minute.. maybe I was.. LOL!
