    Thanks very much I appreciate it, Will0240
    You call that FUN? i tried to do it, but every time I hit "submit" I got an error page. So here it is, be careful what you ask for:

    1. How much knowledge do you have on art?
    • I don’t take an interest in art.
    • I have a slight interest in art.
    • I have a great interest in art.
    • I don’t work using my artistic abilities.
    • I do work using my artistic abilities, if so what? X

    Professional illustrator

    2. In general which is more popular Traditional art or Digital art?
    • Traditional art.
    • Both the same popularity.
    • Digital art.
    • Other/Why/Comments (please specify) X

    Terribly worded question, impossible to answer. More popular with WHO?

    3. Do you prefer Traditional Art or Digital Art?
    • Traditional is much better than Digital.
    • Digital is great but Traditional is better.
    • I think they are both great.
    • Traditional is great but Digital is better.
    • Digital is much better than Traditional.
    • Other/Why/Comments (please specify) X

    Again, bad question. You do realize "art" isn't one thing, right?

    4. Can someone be more creative with Digital methods or Traditional methods?
    • Traditional methods can bring out much more creativity in someone
    • It depends on the person’s overall creativity
    • Digital methods can bring out much more creativity in someone.
    • Other/Why/Comments (please specify) X

    Yes.

    5. Which takes more overall skill?
    • Traditional methods.
    • It depends on the person’s general artistic ability.
    • Both methods have the same skill level to master.
    • Digital methods.
    • Other/Why/Comments (please specify) X

    Oh for fuck's sake.

    6. What are the pros and cons of digital methods?

    Please

    7. What are the pros and cons of traditional methods?

    do

    8. Why do people work traditionally?

    your

    9. Why do people work digitally?

    own

    10. What are your overall views on the subject?

    homework.

    The only time I fill out surveys these days if they at least promise me a chance to free stuff (that I'd want like Amazon Gift cards or $$) and actually put together surveys that work.

    Please mark the applicable option:

    I will happily fill out a survey even if I'm not paid.
    I will happily fill out a survey but only if I get some reward.
    I will never fill out a survey.

    :-)

    Someone please explain to me the fascination some people have in defining a boundary between digital and traditional art. I've never been able to understand it.

    I think, for some unenlightened folk, the fascination stems from believing
    they can create masterpieces, quicker and easier using digital tools. Coupled with
    the "threat" of digital technology overwhelming the need to retain/create hardcopies
    of books and paintings. In other words it stems from hype/naiveté and perhaps even
    some kind of weird justification that some folks think they need when believing they
    must pursue one or the other.

    At least, in my opinion.

    People like to categorize things in neat little boxes. And then fight over which box is better.

    I don't know if there is a fascination but there is a difference. No value judgement here but they are not the same thing. Each can be great or horrible depending upon the author.

    You think that simulating painting is the same as actually painting? Because its not and it won't ever be. One is real, with real manipulation of materials one is not. You can't hold a digital painting or hold the components a digital painting are made from because they are not real. Just like looking at a photo of the grand canyon is not the same as going to the grand canyon. Just like watching porn is not the same as having sex with another human being. You only get a small fraction of the experience.

    I wasn't trying to imply digital and traditional painting are the same. I was just trying to understand why some people always want to start an unprovoked debate about it. Queen G's comment answered it pretty swiftly though.

    I feel like this survey is fishing for approval of Digital painting, that is how it reads to me anyway.

    The concept that something is a physical thing that exists in the world that you could touch (even if security guards would haul you off if you did) is a powerful and universal idea. It doesn't make traditional better, but I do think it is possible that for some people the day may never come where a physical canvas is less impressive than a digital image of equal quality.

    The upshot for digital is that it has one less step for art to be used on the computer.

    We live in a time when you get to choose the tool you prefer, that's about all there is to it. The rest is for generations long after we are dead to worry about
