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 ...

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.

I couldn't agree more. Often times I use 2 or 3 layers when painting. Most the time, additional layers happen as the finishing touches to the overall piece (ie, if I need to adjust the curves or levels, but don't want to apply it to a flat image, to which I could lose everything if it comes out wrong, etc.)
