A graphic story i made once ...quite some time ago...This is just a random page from the center of the story i choose to photo and
then give a digital facelift to.
It is acrylics on illustration board...the digital enhancements are mostly the word ballons and type...and border edge cleanups and a
little painting here and there and playing with a few photo insertions. Art-wise it is still 80% original ..so it is in tradtional art category.
The story is a thinking-man's Science Fiction /Horror story which asks the question : Just whose god is actually holding ALL the cards?
It was titled : " God Will Provide "
This is just a warmup to the paintings i am redoing digitally that pack a much greater wallop. It's fun going over your old self and altering
with a new eye. ( to whatever extent ). Could never have done it without digital.
Someday i might redo the story from scratch digitally ...
A mouse is just as much a vehicle of expression as a pencil or a paint brush...
The real artist has an obsession to try as many different mediums of expression as possible and a mouse and software are just another one.
If any work is appealing ( on any level) or beautiful to a viewer, do the unwashed masses really care what tools were used to make it... ? Granted there are those that feel if they cant own and touch the "original" it isnt art ( as in "a print of a work " ) ...but i dont think that makes the value, expression-wise, of a particular work any less in the long run.
If my work above here was in a ( completed multi-page story ) comic book form ( it's only logical ending place as available path to profit ) would you NOT buy it because part or all of it was done digitally?..
That would be silly if the story was good and the art was good.
In fact i would be hard pressed to believe that most comic books these days are not colored digitally. ( they are probably drawn free hand still in most cases )
The only other possible reason it would matter is just personal preference ...a person likes the look of pencil strokes, etc. or other elements that are harder to pull off in consistant fasion ( with original style ) in a digital software.
I ask silly because I was't sure how dital work in the process of some one saling it. and why people are drawn to it, yes it is beautiful. I guess, I like art that is done by hand because 10,000 people don't have the same piece on their wall. I wasn't sure if that type of art work had any vaule if power was out and man kind sat around a dark comp trying to remember what their piece of art look like, Digtil is beautiful yes but if they did the same with a paint brush I feel it would be worth more then with the help of a comp, hands aren't perfect and I still believe both are art I was just asking! Don't make me come in there and slap your fingers. sorry to get your fang up over it I figure asking a touchy question was safe to ask you
sorry to get your fang up over it I figure asking a touchy question was safe to ask you ============================================ lol..you didnt get my fang up and i dont consider the question to be touchy by any means...in a truely free society ..no question should be touchy
and you can ask me anything.... i'm sorry if it came off as a bit of a smart ass response ..but i was just trying to make a strong point
If the power was out ...everything i said previously still applies... If mankind lost power forever and had to relive in the dark ages, the artwork lost on electronic media forever would still be artwork.. just not viewable... THe vision and self-expression that created it would still have taken place.
The term "art" does not mean " Something i can always readily access"
I wasn't sure if that type of art work had any vaule if power was out and man kind sat around a dark comp trying to remember what their piece of art look like, =============================================================
Well if mankind lost power for a long time or forever... i doubt any art would be on the top of the "value list " ...more like candle wax or batteries ...
I like art that is done by hand because 10,000 people don't have the same piece on their wall. =====================================================
right ..which is what i meant earlier when i said : Granted there are those that feel if they cant own and touch the "original" it isnt art ( as in "a print of a work " ) . ....and you must be one of "them" ! ...( lol ..just kidding )
No stress ..we werent solving world problems here ..just discussing art theory and theory like art is never defined universally where we can accuse another of "wrong thinking"
Everyone will have their own opinions ...just so long as the ones that think like i do have cash is all i care about ...lol
if i have put you on edge by any of my responses you may reduce your stress levels by spanking me...
no I thought I had put you there. but I'll be happy to you just the same. oh well it was fun whiping you and thanks for your view on it, I've always wanted to try it. But I love the touch and feel of the paint, clay, glass and wood. and then there is the smell of it all too. so I'll stick to me Cave man art form and not waste money on an art form I would not enjoy the touch and smell of Thanks again James
