This is the first in a new series of posts (not that I am giving up any of my other series). In this series I will examine the various artists and books that have influenced my own art over the years. The trigger for this is actually feedback that I have received in recent times that my digital art is not art.
“What?!?” I hear some of you cry. Don’t worry, it’s not from any of you. It’s from some non-online people that I know.
The criticisms include:
- it’s not realistic enough
- it doesn’t look like art
- it’s not art if it’s not painted by hand
- digital art takes no skill or talent
- it doesn’t look like the CGI in films
Besides being incredible displays of ignorance, such comments are also hurtful. So dwelling on these comments
