now that you're done laughing, so I've been thinking about a journal that Dagneo made recently about digital art being fake it's not and it makes me really angry when people think it is
digital art and traditional art are no different- they're two halves of the same whole. they're different media, a tablet and a brush are no different that pencil and paint. they're just different tools to create with. there is no secret button that makes everything perfect for you, there is no magical computer brain that makes everything perfect for you. everything you make is a product of you. I've seen some digital drawings that I swear to god is a photograph of oil on canvas, and I've seen some paintings that are so crisp and clean that it's impossible for it to not be a vector.
every artist deserves appreciation regardless of the tools they use to create their masterpieces. don't diminish them because you don't agree with their tools. a frycook isn't any less of a chef, and a high school math teacher isn't necessarily any less a genius mathematician, but you wouldn't tell them their expertise is fake.
luckily I haven't had to deal with this sort of criticism since I was in high school where the other kids in art class thought they were better than me and the kids in digital art class only took it because there wasn't any real work to do. but I put my heart out to those who do get this kind of flack, whether it be hobbyists or professionals, because I know it hurts when someone tries to take away something's validation. stay strong. <3
