    WACOM, Real ART??

    i was talknig to my art teacher the other day when we got on the subject of wacom tablets. I was very interested in getting one of them, after seeing what they can do through this forum. but she was not interested, she told me she did not look at it as REAL art, cause she could not touch it or feel it, it just wan't the same to her. she sayed it was a tool, but not an art tool. and said its not REAL art.
    -i was just wondering about wha your opinions on this subject????

    I'm sure that upon closer inspection your teacher will turn out to be a crock of shit disguised as a human.

    OK, thats too harsh, she is a purist, and she is entitled to her opinion, but if you tell me that what the guys on this forum turn out isn't art, you are loony.:crosseyed:

    Oh yeah, there's a post on this page about whether digital art is real. You should read that.

    I don't think she has ever used one, and probably doesn't even know how to paint digitaly..thus she is AFRAID of what she does not understand. It is a tool, but so is a brush, palet knife,..etc.

    I sell digital paintings on giclee prints all the time. In fact most illustrators and fine artists are using these tools.

    But, you will always have people who want "originals" and in that case, a good ol' canvas and paint would suffice.

    Digital painting is a great way to figure out you colors and composition, and then paint it on canvas later. Your creative process is not hindered with cleaning brushes, waiting for paint to dry, or ever running out of paint!!!

    Sounds like your teacher isnt a REAL art teacher. Print something out for her and tell her to touch it.

    i think otis hit it on the head with the fear thing, most people just shun that which they havent done.

    you can print a photograph and its considiered art, but its not art if you print a digital painting on that same piece of material that the photograph was printed on? i dont buy it.

    slap that teacher

    I think you're teacher is an arrogant "artsie-fartsie"... am I right? They tend to put down anything that's not in a gallery, or museum. ... stuff like comic art, graffiti, and digital works, just to name a few...

    ... and yet these are the people who would buy a signature on a canvas for $1200. ... or think that a painted urinal is "art".

    ... i hate those kinds of people, just as much as I hate arrogant pseudo-intellectuals like michael moore.

    I think that urinals are a piece of art. its an ingenius idea! Peeing on the wall! You can't tell me that peeing on the wall is less fun then peeing in the toilet. Though peeing in the snow is more fun. You can make pictures. Peeing + drawing = fun

    Is it fun? Do you have fun when you do it? Can you do digital and traditional art?...Yes!

    What else matters.

    I have tons of fun with my wacom , I also go through mounds of sketchbooks and I also have large oil paint/canvas's around my place.

    I definitely don't want all my work to be in the computer when I die. That's why I'm so in love with the Golden Age Illustrators. Check This Link. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/for...?s=&forumid=19

    Art is dope in general. There is no need to limit yourself to one medium.

    -Joshua




    ...I also do my Colour Studies for my large oil paintings on the computer. It's fun, quick and efficient.

    You just need to take a wacom and kick it up his ass. Then ask him if its real.

    WARNING!!!
    Written when I was very drunk!


    Hey... Micheal Moore actually has a point with his movies, and they're pretty good.

    ...But yeah, there is a lot of hypocrites. They will always be there, the people who doesn't look to the future, just to the past. But thats the nature of the human being.

    In some levels artists are more than the ordinary human, and tend to see over barriers created by the mind. Someone who can't see over these barriers just don't see the future. There is stuff that should be taken more seriously than digital art, that the plain human don't seem to understand (or lack the knowledge about), but it is a pretty good example. Just because it doesn't exist in an analog world it doesn't exist. Thats just a stupid thought!

    Just because you can touch an oilpainting does it make more real than a digital painting? I don't think so. There's really no diffrence between an oilpainting or a digitalpainting. As soon you see that there's actually no really diffrence between the digital world or the analog world you will understand that. In a near future we will be able to recreate a Mona lisa as easily as we copy a digital painting. It is just that the digital science has gone much further than the analog. The only reason that it is so is because you can apply all analog science to the digital world and progress beyond that, without the limitations of the mind.

    But what it comes down to is that a digital painting is as real as an analog one, the only thing that makes one seem more real than the other is our mind. (And the only reason to ever think of what the mind says, is when you're trying to make some cash on a painting...)

    urk... I know, when I'm drunk I'm pretty cheesy, please forgive me...:beer:
