Question Where shall I go? What shall I do?

And does anybody give a damn? That was a joke, sorry.

I'm new around these parts, and I want to be sure I'm posting in the right forum(s) before I go too far.

I'm a digital artist, and I've been working digitally since around 1995. Some of my work is obviously digital:

Name:  3354620.jpg
Views: 44
Size:  239.7 KB

Name:  3030220.jpg
Views: 41
Size:  282.4 KB

But some of my pictures—the majority, actually—are intended to be viewed as though they were traditional paintings in oil. In these I deliberately avoid any "computer-y" appearance. Here are a couple:

Name:  3200345.jpg
Views: 45
Size:  201.6 KB

Name:  3070484.jpg
Views: 46
Size:  63.2 KB

So...in which forum(s) should the latter style be posted? Does this forum stress the digital medium itself, or the results? Is it bad form to post a picture in more than one forum?

Is there a reason why we're still using low-rez emoticons from the previous century?

Never mind the last question.

Anything digital goes here. We do like to hear about what program you use and maybe a little about your technique, especially since digital art is so diverse.

You do very good work in various styles. I hope we will keep seeing more from you, it's very quiet here from some reason.

Yes, you can cross post pictures in a couple of forums. Just check the rules in other areas about digital work. You think the emoticons are from the previous century...

Beautiful work. I especially like the last two.

Welcome, you are in the right place! Congratulations are in order, because most people post in the Digital Forum, and I end up moving them. All things digital are welcome. I can see you are a very classical painter, and I also appreciate the very classical application in digital. And yes, I'd like to know what tools you are using as well.

I actually have no specific technique because a technique can easily turn into a gimmick, and I don't want to paint the same picture a hundred times. Of course I use Photoshop and Painter, but I also use vector art that I "soften" into a painterly style. I also use those cheap (or free) programs available for the iPad, most of which do ONE thing very well—but one thing is enough.

The key is that I usually use several programs for each piece, taking from each whatever it does best and blending them all in such a way as to cover my tracks. I don't want a twelve-year-old saying: "Oh, yeah! I have that same filter on my iPhone!"
