Thought I'd say "Hi" and share some of my recent art. Almost all of it is digitally painted. Though, I paint it as if it were traditional - one layer, no CrlZ etc. Please let me know your thoughts. My father doesn't like my digital work because he thinks it's 'cheating'/not real art. What are your guys opinions?

I love your digital art. The bay roan is my favorite, so crystal clear (:

I think art is art, no matter the tools, whether you use control-z or not. I wish I had control-z in real life!

Why don't you use layers, however, since one can use layers in traditional painting methods, too.

Digital art is art. I say go for it. You're doing beautiful work.

While I don't really undestand the process of achieving digital art(my bad:wink2: ), I certainly think it IS art! And yours is beautiful!
