>>3645422>those sound arbitrary unless you think the quality of an artist lies in his ability to select brushes, paints, and canvas
I mean yeah that kind of does determine the "quality of an artist" in traditional mediums. All of the bullshit prep work and stuff that you have to do before and after painting are just taken for granted when you're going full blown digimon. Like a lot of what makes a painter "good" is their ability to mix colors well, and their ability to know when to use additivatives and how to fuck with opacity and water and it's all this wabi sabi chaos, which digital totally just avoids.
Then there's HOW you use a brush, how much pressure, how wet it is, the type of strokes and stuff, all kinds of things that don't really translate when you're working on a tablet.
It's like the same conversation when talking about shooting on film versus digital. There's just a whole lot of extra bullshit that goes into the process when you're using film, while digital basically literally renders that shit automatically. >and yes painters can zoom. it's called a magnifying glass.
Sure but with digital you can zoom in on work on it zoomed in. Can literally go pixel by pixel super easily, while trying to do that on canvas is just tedious and inexact. And again, ctrl+Z makes everything different in pretty fundamental ways. >>3645419>even a small mistake stands out because you're drawing on pixels that can be scaled/zoomed in.
That applies to traditional more. Difference is you can't just select an eraser and tighten up a painting by pixel you know?>Either way, if you're strictly traditional you should know which colors mix into what.
Yeah but again it's something that doesn't even matter when you're learning on digital. I think when people jump from digital to paint there's a much bigger learning curve than vice versa.
I agree that they both have "ups and downs" but practically speaking digital has way more ups than trad, much easier to master 2 me
