Digital or classical art?

Hi! I started visiting classes for the Art Academy, just to get in shape again. But future is in digital art. Now I wonder if I should go to these classes (that are expensive) or tutoring myself at home with digital art.
What do you think?

Re: Digital or classical art?

Both forms of art are valid. It depends what you prefer. But in the long run I think traditional ways of making art can be more costly while digital art you only pay for the tools every one in awhile when upgrading computers for example.
Really both forms have pros and cons.
Actually one big con when creating traditional art is space.
One big con for digital art is will your eyes take it. LOL😁

Re: Digital or classical art?

Although, classical art is getting rare these days but it has its own prime value and it requires certain top notch skills. Whereas in digital art anyone with knowledge of tools can become artist. If you are passionate about art classical art is the way and if you are looking to earn well than digital should be your choice.

Re: Digital or classical art?

I don't even know how to describe my art.
I take a photo, when send it for classic colouring/retouching, when redraw it on my pc.

Re: Digital or classical art?

When will the world’s art museums start replacing the framed traditional paintings with digital prints or monitors? Not anytime soon.

I've been working digitally for years, but I don't see Windsor and Newton, shutting down!

Re: Digital or classical art?

I have been working digitally for 22 years. I have been accepted into art galleries based on my digital work. It always felt like cheating and I always felt like my contribution was inferior to any painter. until I started painting, I never actually called myself an artist. I can create anything in photoshop but I can not create a good oil painting without a good oil painting robot. I'm not even joking there are oil painting robots now.

Most of them are no more sophisticated than what happens when you take a picture with a digital camera and then print it out from a printer. They can't recognize related structures, so they can't really do anything but general effects.

This is one such example of a drawing robot-- https://www.wired.co.uk/article/sketching-robots ...It is kind of impressive in a way, but it is also rather generic in its style. The placement and direction of many of the lines it draws has nothing to do with the form of what's being drawn. I would consider works like this to be more of a novelty than art.



My particular interest is in small sculptures... I have noticed that there are a lot of people (selling online) who seem to have tried to use 3-D printers or CNC routers to bypass traditional techniques. Some of these items look okay, but many bear obvious marks of being machine-made. Others have errors of proportions used or details that are missing, as if the machine method they used could not reliably create tiny details so the person just made that part of the model a bit larger--or just removed those details entirely.

Somehow, I'm not worried.
