Though I personally think it isn't a real fight - I work with both traditional and digital and they have their ad- and disadvantages. And with each medium you get out something else and it looks different and IT'S JUST ALL SO AWESOME 8D
well, i'm a traditional artist, but one of my best friends is a digital artist and i give him major credit. i couldn't do what he does. both are fantastic forms of art, so though we may fight, we must join forces to fight off this evil called reality.
Digital. I prefer digital because you can fit more details in, erase your mistakes properly, have as much colours as you want and because it's smooth and shiny...also, that paint brush doesn't look very threatening.
i love this piece of art its deffrent then the others witch i think is important on devaintart everyone has there styles and all i see is same old same old but then i come across this and think wow that is trully something well done for creating this piece keep up the awsome work
Well I gotta say digital won in this case, nice work.
As for the question, I think that respect of digital will grow as computer savvy generations become art connoisseurs/dealers/teachers. In my experience, when you tell most baby-boomers that you drew something on your computer, they give you a knowing nod, and you can tell that they think you just hit a button on your mouse and the picture was created in a few seconds like when they click a thumbnail in their email. They don't understand the work that goes into quality digital art because they don't understand computers very well, much less a tablet/stylus/photoshop/painter/etc.. For the most part, these people still run the schools and perpetuate the idea that one can't be a successful digital artist without a strong traditional foundation. It's kind of like the idea that a rapper isn't a true rapper until they've done prison time and/or been shot, regardless of talent.
Yes, there are some feats that traditional tools can accomplish that digital can't, but the same can be said of spray paint versus colored pencils. These are tools. Being well-versed with one does not make one well-versed in the other.
