Digital Art stamp by Lumaris Digital Art stamp by Lumaris
I didn't mean for it to sound rude if it does...
This is rather inspired from how many people I've seen/read that think digital art is "not true art" because it's made on the "computer." Seriously. There ARE people that think the computer does it for you. <.<

:bulletred: Digital art has it's advantages, and so does traditional art.
:bulletred: Traditional art is very difficult, but so is digital art.
:bulletred: Neither one is quick.
:bulletred: You have to learn the program you use to digital paint, just like you have to learn the colors and texture of the traditional paint before you can make a masterpiece.

I'm not saying digital art is better, and I'm not trying to bite off the heads of people who think it's a piece of cake. I'm just saying ...

This it MY opinion!! To me, digital art is just easier because you can fix the mistakes easily by just using Ctrl+z and get rid of the messed up line while with traditional artist, when they erase, they usually leave a faded line from the erased line and with coloring, what digital artists do it just use the eraser, but traditional artist might have to scrap the image if it looks undefinable especially with line art. Trust me, me and my friend get into constant arguments over this and I'm prepared for the comments I might get, but to me, Digital is a little easier then traditional... Don't hate me!! ;_;

While I do think that traditional art is harder, I agree fully with this stamp. :)

I'm learning how to use photoshop. Trust me, without my teacher, I'd be lost.

Oh so true!  When I show some of my relatives how I draw on the computer, they always think I used a "stencil" or something...even though they JUST watched me draw it from scratch! :XD:  Digital art requires just as much artistic knowledge and experience as it would when working in any other medium.

Of course it's not easy. You have to either buy a tablet and a drawing program or draw with a mouse.

Yeah, I know how that feels. I know people who don't appreciate digital art because they think it's just clicking buttons.

I agree that both traditional and digital art is quite hard and it takes me A LOT of time with them. I do both digital and traditional and I say it's hard making my pics look good.

exactly. I admit its easier to do things because you can undo but the talent is still needed to make it come out as beautiful as it dose. ^-^

If I may add something: Undo and Layers don't really make anything easier. Sure, you can undo a mistake, but what if that single line stroke has a part you want, and a part you don't? Or, again, what if a piece of highlight is partially right but partially not? You can't just undo that, because you may not be able to restore the good part of that highlight by hand. I almost NEVER use the undo tool unless I absolutely need to (i.e. I've made a complete mistroke due to my tablet pen dragging across the tablet without my knowledge (until I hear the sound of it, of course)).

Layers only go so far. You have to know how to use them effectively. It's one thing to say "Look, I can separate my line art and my flat coloring", but it's a completely different matter to be able to say "This blending mode does this, and this is how that'll look when we do this".

TL;DR: Layers and Undo only take you so far, and it takes real skill to use them.
