Which do you appreciate seeing more? Digital art or art that physically exists and can be photographed or scanned.
And in the " traditional " art section do you prefer abstract art or literal art
I will admit to being an abstract artist in general, I only started a few months ago and haven't been trained. I tend to draw what i see in my head when i listen to music, that being colours and shapes when I am at a complete state of relaxation ( no drugs )

Your an abstract artist by your own admission right? The only way to make your art is traditionally. Nobody will pay you to do abstract art as a concept artist digitally, so you need to be in galleries. I would think most people here prefer realism over abstract because they are here to learn to be illustrators and production and concept artists. Not much call for abstract artists in those disciplines.
I really have no idea what the terms are or anything like that, I am amateur in my understanding of art and its history and technical terms. I was just told this was a good art site. I am just curious what most people's opinions are on the matter.
Can't have a thread where people just say "I like this and this is why". Someone always chimes in with "My opinion makes more sense."
I like traditional methods, being able to hold a physical creation over digital replication is more satisfying to me. As far as abstract vs. traditional, I don't care - if I like the way it looks than the category doesn't really matter.

If someone cannot share their opinion without being shouted at or ridiculed then something is wrong.
I personally find mindscapes more interesting ( Although I love literal art as well ). By "percieved" reality I mean visual "reality." The photograph does that now, painting is free of that obligation now. The cosmos doesn't consist soley of photons bouncing on two-dimensional plains, there's so much more to reality than what we can percieve with our pre-hensile fleshy bodies. I personally find mindscapes more exhilirating than landscapes. I enjoy looking at abstract art that explores this. I also enjoy literal art ( I hope that is the right term - I am quite ignorant of art terminology ) and portraits of people that capture their persona and spirit. I think Joseph Mallord Turner is very interesting because he sort of paints landscapes based on his own personal experience. And so this allows for abstraction as he can exaggerate whatever he wants based on what he experienced in that place.
Let me know if you think I am speaking shit or not ^^.

however if I asked what time it was every thirty seconds for a couple hours, and several other people did the same, you could probably be excused for getting a little snappy after a while.
Whereas if they all took the effort to tell time on their own and only the occasional person had to ask, you would be very patient.
There are a great number of resources out there covering the basics, a few hours on your part reading will help focus your questions a bit. This would be usefull both for yourself and us
At the risk of being a bit blunt, a little bit of time checking out the site and looking through the previous entries in this forum would have saved a bit of trouble.

"Skill is the result of trying again and again, applying our ability and proving our knowledge as we gain it. Let us get used to throwing away the unsuccessful effort and doing the job over. Let us consider obstacles as something to be expected in any endeavor; then they won't seem quite so insurmountable or so defeating." - Andrew Loomis
Um, yeah, what Nezumi said. Just browse back through "Art Discussion" a few pages and you'll see this subject come up again and again and again (including the infamous "Banishment of Beauty" battleground-I mean, thread...)
The problem is that every time this subject comes up, it turns into either a HUGE messy flame-war or an endless vicious circle of people spouting off from their particular entrenched positions.
Let's just say some people take this stuff way too seriously. You may as well debate religion. It gets THAT bad.
*Leaving now before the troops come marching in*
Honestly, the digital art I do like invariably has been created by an artist with strong traditional skills.
Sorry, I only answered the first part. I prefer to work representationally, but enjoy any arrangement of line, color, or shape that shows the attention of a thinking, feeling human-being.
