What is Digital Art?
Today there is actually more than one category in the digital art field, digital photography, digital painting, and darkroom effects. Of course many digital artists combine several digital categories when creating their digital art.
In digital photography the artist uses a digital camera and then uses image editing software to create special effects or manipulate their images.
In digital painting, the artist has even more freedom and combines images and a lot of manipulation and color to create his image. Here the artist usually creates his artwork totally on the computer using painting software.
3D art work – this type of work is usually done using programs that give the image a three dimensional look
These are the basics to digital art but there are many sub categories to this type of art. Because this is a relatively new medium, there are many areas to grow in and the field is still implementing and taking on new techniques. This is a truly unusual and beautiful art style.
