interesting discussion.  Since I primarily do collage, I've often wondered about "originality" factor in my work-what makes it original to me is the execution of an idea using a found image as one element, with painting,drawing, glueing of stuff etc. to complete my "master plan Wink".    It seems to me digital is much the same- I just don't get how to do it (and I love my paper and glu to much to stray...)and am mightily impressed by those of you who are digi artists.

 I paint and draw but really love collage/altered art/assemblage and find that anything using found elements is a bottomless quigmire when it comes to the originality discussion (so many point of views!!)

and yup I'm ATC'ing in the new year-I need to make one for my family's time capsule (we'll open it up next new year's eve)  Happy New Year to everyone!!!

Glad my 'devil's advocate' got the ball rolling for more opinions and discussions on this one....I knew there were more views to be expressed, but didn't want to get branded as the ATC Bi*ch for bringing them up.  Thanks for a great conversation, everyone.  Smiley

As long as it comes from your head, I don't really care what method you use to make it corporeal...I like to know beforehand just because I'm insatiably curious Wink

And I wish I was ringing in the New Year with ATCs, but instead I'm sitting amongst mountains of half-sorted books and supplies.  I'm only about an eighth of the way through my ephemera collection and the section I'm keeping already weighs 35 lbs...save me from my stash!

I don't think any of of us think of you that way!

I am very thankful to everyone who's replied! This discussion is indeed interesting and thought-provoking. If/when I do a digital ATC, I will probably still be using clip art or downloaded images, so I would always consider the layout and overall outcome to be what's mine and original.

Thanks again! Keep on posting any new insights, too!

I'm not ATC-ing the new year in... I'm crocheting it in! And I should be posting my FO in a little while! Grin

I'm just curious... I gave away all the scrapbooking supplies i never used (to my niece in Spain - I guess it's hard to get supplies there) because I started doing digital scrapbooking...

So, (maybe I am totally off base!) I was wondering about digital ATC's.  Since I haven't even made one yet, I don't know a whole lot. 

is this okay to do as a ATC card or totally frowned upon?

well, I am a digital artist, I've worked with a number of programs such as Daz3D (that's a free download but the addons do add up), Bryce, Terragen, VueD'Espirit, Paint Shop Pro (I have versions 5-10 but I prefer versions 9 and 6.. in that order) and Photoshop.

I do make my digital images from pre-purchased packs and morphs for Poser, but the resulting images are all mine.  Sometimes it can take upward of 25 hours to make one good design. 

When I do print my images I use the photo quality setting and the highest DPI possible on the printer, and more often than not I do add an embellisment or two.

I love my digital art.. but I like creating too, so sometimes my ATCs are a blend of what I've done digitally and collaged or such
