This is a huge WOW! Digital?!? Who would have thought? It has all the great features of a solid oil painting.

Thanks! While I am a painter (I am NOT a "computer artist" :) ), all my posts have been digital since I recently started posting here.

I'm using the Procreate app on IPad, exclusively now, but this image is several years old and was done using a very old Photoshop release.

I always start from a blank screen and don't import photos or other images.

Thanks for your input! :wave:

This is a great piece....It does look like an oil painting.

"Ignore this post."

why?

This is a very good composition, in all respects but one...digital lacks texture that an oil / acrylic version would have.
Is there a way you could add "shadows" in a digital work?

I cannot do digital due to my ineptitude with computers (so far) except for Photoshop photo manipulations.

I think if it had some appearance of depth it would really go from very good to superb.

Glad to see your posts, you do very good work, and I am enjoying them.

The Painter application on a PC enables these effects, but I find the program excruciatingly slow.

I too miss the 3D textures possible in oils / acrylics, however, bear in mind that some artists work "flat" and that some media are, by nature, flat, e.g., water colors, mono prints, etc.

So rather than faking texture, I accept that it won't be on a print. I won't put electric logs in my fireplace, either. :D Augmented prints become another, original, thing of course.

I like the way you think!

Much obliged. :wave: And now, a gratuitous image (WIP):
