I do not value gravitas in art, and I’m unsure what sort of worth, exactly, you’re talking of here.
I do not believe that you, or anyone else, can post an image here that will convince anyone physical is the way to go.
I do, however, think that the tricount and texture resolution possible in the real world makes it absolutely impossible for digital to compete as far as static art goes. Well, digital art may be easier to get good at, giving it an early advantage, but a physical painting can, for example, have actual physical depth if created with many layers of paint, something that simply isn’t possible to give to something that will only ever be displayed as a pattern of lights in a flat surface.
Of course, if what you’re doing with your art is posting it on the internet, obviously the advantages of the physical world cease to apply and being able to render every leaf on a tree, calculating how it will shade and light the leaves and objects around it, before running it through anti-aliasing and whatnot suddenly gains the upper hand.
You can’t compare the value of digital art and traditional art, it is as simple as that. They are two different art forms with different purposes. Digital art is mainly used as a tool for the industry, where you can achieve good and fast results with minimum cost. Traditional art is basically luxury and culture. Anyway both art forms are tools to create something - in the end the quality and “worth” of traditional or digital art depends on the maker, the artist, a human mind. another thing why you can’t compare these two is because they are different mediums. Digital art uses light colours, traditional art object colours. Also digital art is not easier, like in traditional art you have to learn how to use your tools, but it is more comfortable, you don’t have to fear failure so much as you can redo things.
Eggs. I’m not talking about in-game art. Also, I’m comparing them from an aesthetic aspect, not quality. Although, I’ve considered what games would seem like if they used textures which were physically painted and scanned.
Here’s a matte painting of mine. It’s pretty crappy.
Here’s a drawing. it is also crappy!!
I really have nothing to say about these. 'Just felt like sharing.
If you post images on the internet, How do you know if it is traditional or digital? seriously. Digital art has pixelation, traditional art doesn’t. However by posting it, It becomes digital art.
Can you really tell the difference between them when it’s posted on the internet?
The only art I find unpleasant is where there’s badly done photoshopping.
For example take the first one Andre posted.
It assaults my eyes - It’s clearly a composition of different images merged together. You can clearly see semi-transparent mergey awfulness going on and the scale of the explosion on the left is just ridiculous. I find my eyes are drawn to it and it’s distracting and frankly looks silly. To me.
