I apologize if i offended anyone, and i certainly didn't mean to if i did. i was just posting an opinion of mine, a simple observation on what appears to me to be a shift in the world of art. I'm not saying that digital art is Bad, or not legit. in any way, i cant do most of the stuff other people do with a computer, i was just feeling frustrated, the kind of art i do, and enjoy, and work terribly hard at seems to be fading into the background and letting something which to me seems inhuman (though I'm sure its creative for those who use it) take over.
i don't mean to be snobby or pretentious, this is just what i'm panicking about right now.
i was in barnes and noble last night, looking in the magazine section and was appaled at what i saw:
Number of just straight up "art" magazines: 3 Number of digital art/ photoshop magazines: 15
first photography, now what? illustration? painting? how can a computer really replicate? its a machine, theres nothing natrual or creative in it
so hear this you huddled masses, those who bow thier heads in the presence of a photo-shopped picture, for modern technological progression, stop, pick back up your pencils, pens, paintbrushes and brandish them like swords against the machine....literaly.
i LOVE the klimt one, i did a mary cassat in his style for art class and i had to stare at that painting for several days of my life, and you approached his style beautifully with an awesome mix of your own
