Pencil Addict Stamp by TheGreenDragonGirl Pencil Addict Stamp by TheGreenDragonGirl
My first stamp. Not bad, but maybe kinda lacking. I wanted it to show how I feel about most digital work, and how I love traditional. Man, digital art takes almost NO talent whatsoever. I was gonna rave about the evils of digital art, here, but I don't really have time... might add it on, later. Anyway, I'd like to dedicate this stamp, my very first, to those of us who would much rather draw by hand on real paper, rather than on a computer screen.

So, comment to me, please! :la:

If digital art is so easy....then why is most digital art CRAP!? Digital art is a pain in the butt. I don't know why people can't respect all forms of art instead. I'm just so SICK of hearing people talk about how digital takes 'no effort at all'.





Why can't we all just get along? :iconsadmemeplz:

Digital art does take effort. But I find traditional easier.

I believe that if you work hard, digital art can look just as good as traditional art. My digital art used to look really bad, until I put more time and effort into it.

Haha awesome!! I myself love my pencil.

I will have to somewhat agree about Digital Art. I use both Traditional and Digital, Digital is easier if I'm doing something quick, but when it comes to quick I'm all about Traditional. I always sketch Traditionally, and color Digitally and Traditionally. But its hard since supplies for coloring can be expensive, same with getting paper, plus you have to buy more and refill, with Digital art you just have the computer, tablet software and done. Sometimes the software and tablet can be very expensive. And when I color Digitally, I work hard. So Digital can be hard, and its still art. So Digital isn't all that bad like people think, but I'm still rather intent on traditional artwork I hate it when Digital artists bash Traditional. Woops . . . I rambled. :blush: Sorry! ^^;

Oh, don't worry about rambling! I do the exact same thing! And I'm very glad to hear the opinions of others, so thank you very much for sharing! I, too, color digitally, just not as much as I do traditionally, and I do almost all of my digitally colored sketches traditionally. I just find it so much easier... Plus, it's not that easy (or very nice) to sketch in Photoshop. ^^;

Yeah, we all do. =P
No problem! :D I like to color digitally but not lazily. :P It ruins the fun. Yeah, Photoshop isn't easy to sketch on. I know there is good software for it, my good software I never installed onto my laptop thinking I didn't want it anymore for inking traditional sketches then I wanted to try sketching on the computer again. :facepalm: I'm still really into traditional art just as much.

Yeah, I recently did a contest entry, and I was gonna do it all traditional, but I thought,"You know what? These people aren't gonna like it as well if I do that... People are so judgemental like that... It'll never work." So I just went ahead and did it digitally. Meh, I guess I needed the practice, anyway. :shrug:

I hate that. :hmm: When it comes to contests, it has to be perfect Digital art and Judges always choose their friends since they are a group of DA friends that all draw well. When with different admins and not being friends same people always win. :hmm:

Well, I guess what I mean to say is that traditional art takes alot more talent than digital. Look at it my way: it takes no tallet to click on the paintbucket to fill in solid areas of color. It does to take a pencil, and manually do so, while keeping it even. Takes alot longer, too. And that's just one part. I could go on for hours, but I guess I won't. =)

Using the paint bucket tool is not what I'm referring to. I'm talking about realistic digital paintings that artists have spent hours on end creating.

I can understand the difficulty of traditional art. I've tried it, and I'm no good at it =p I'm sure if I practiced it would get easier, but it's not really my cup of tea.

I would like to hear your opinions on it, though. It's always nice to know what others think :)

I agree that GOOD digial art takes talent. What I mean is if the program is doing all the work, then you have no talent. If you can do as well, or better traditionally, then, yes, you can do better than I can, for sure! If, however, the program does the shading, perfects the linework, smoothes the colors, then, heck, what is the artist doing, anyway? Clicking the mouse? Not much else.

I sort of see it thin way...: I can draw perfect, black, bold, ink lines by hand, no computer involved. What others tend to do, however, is draw a line with a tablet, then use a tool to straighten and thicken it. And, if they don't like what the get, there's always the undo button. Traditional doesn't have an undo. We get it right the first time, or start over.

...I guess I see it as a kind of skill thing. It just seems good to me to know what and how to do something the first time... rather than having the computer fix your mistakes. :shrug:

Sorry if all of that was very boring. =P

It all depends on the artist. I myself try to stay away from the smudge, dodge, and burn tools that so many people use. I very rarely use them unless I'm just scribbling.

That's one reason why I can't do traditional art: there is no undo button. Although I try not to use it much in my digital art, I still do sometimes.

Being a digital artist, I can easily realize how traditional art is harder, and generally takes more skill. I won't deny that. I'm just pointing out that the artists that you refer to are the ones that give the rest of us a bad name :)

Oh, I know that. In fact, I know some very wonderful digital artists... :iconkerembeyit: and :iconblackmystica: are two that I greatly admire. I love looking at good digital art. And, yet, I still can't help but wonder... could even these do as well traditionally?

I just feel sorry because the bad digital artists really do give them all a bad name. I guess that the whole thing will always seem lesser to me... However, there is nothing wrong with digital, don't get me wrong! ^^; As I say, I very much enjoy looking at good art, no matter where it came from or what kind it is. =D
