Doesn't make it "more" art, but people will react to the effects.



Which comes to the point of why one makes art - does one make it for oneself, or for others, or for reactions?  Or  all of the above?

I admit it! I did it! I used to be a little snobby and skeptical about photoshop and things when they first starting becoming more popular! I just really like the feel of other materials in my hands, and like to be very hands on with art. I was also a teenager. ;P Now I'm smarter, though, and really respect and admire the work others do in photoshop and the like, even if I don't use it myself, which is mostly because I don't have it or a graphics tablet (or other fancy device that would let me make art with the way that I work best electronically) and also haven't learned it. Right now it seems like an intimidating learning curve to me, and also I just don't want to invest that way right now, time or money or brain space. Anyway, the point is, some people might think that way, but they can just get over it, and it's mostly a personal problem. Wink

Doesn't matter in the least and that's coming from someone who has never used a copic marker in her life  Wink  Seriously, art as an entire concept is a living, growing, and evolving thing just like law and religion.  These things are big things and they aren't supposed to be stagnant, even if the change is only within yourself.  I don't understand HOW things like digital art is art because I don't know how it's made at all (whereas with markers I at least have some clue) but I can still understand that it IS art even though I don't get the mechanics or the desire to make anything without using your hands  Cheesy  Hell, I did a lino cut lately based on an image that wasn't mine to begin with (I'm not selling it or anything, it was just for a swap) and frankly I found the lino cut itself - not even getting to the print - to be art.  In fact, I considered it to be art more than much of what I do, including painting  Cheesy

I guess I just think of it as the traditional art techniques and then modern art techniques; I like them both and I like them blended, too!

Seriously, if someone says that to you or challenges your work, tell them you make and that's all they need to know and then tell them to suck it.  Grin

Wow, thanks for all the replies about this question.
I can see that most here think very simulair to how I feel about it.
I loved something that 'stillatthetop' said: "Eye....Hand....Heart. When you put them together, they spell ART"
I think I will make myself remember that for ever  Cheesy I like it.

Of course it is art! The technique matters much more than the medium and everyone has their own preference.

I do not think it is less art at all.  I will say that my art talent has increased by leaps and bounds since I started using Copics.  I've learned a lot about shading, light sources etc.  it is no different than using watercolour pencils or crayons, just easier to have the colour families labelled.

I think that art is art no matter what material you use. I personally adore Copic markers and judging by the incredible artwork you have put up here, you ARE an artist who creates gorgeous pieces of artwork that you should be proud of. You are awesome!

I agree with what someone said earlier, that copics tend to create more of an "illustrative" feel to a piece. But that deosn't make it any less of an art! It all depends on what kind of vibe you're trying to convey
