When you learn to draw and paint digitally you do it for these fields:
Outside these fields, I don't see a lot of sense in pursuing digital art. Not just my opinion, I spoke to a top Walt Disney and industry artist who confirmed this point to me. He is also a successful Fantasy artist, but he paints with oils on canvas.
He told me that one day there was an exhibition in Los Angeles where traditional art and digital art works transferred on canvas were hanged together in the same show- room: the public hardly noticed the digital works and preferred to look at the traditional works. There is no way to compare the textures and visual appeal of an oil versus a printed digital work.
No, I don't think so. Not in the traditional market.
Fine digital art should not try to reproduce traditional painting but instead it should express a unique vision of creativity produced by means of this new digital medium. Digital art is a new art and should have its new independent character. (Digital Artist Sam Nassar)
Still, who is going to buy a..."poster" and name it "art"?
The "Art Market has also to do with money". As a collector you want to have a UNIQUE piece of art, not just a work of art which can be reproduced identically...
Yes, there is market for scanners, computers, graphic software....not art for itself.
