I don't like being a "cranky pants" but the reason this concerns me, is there are people out there who are making good money off of the public on this crap. Maybe these two websites are not, but I've seen others. It's a fraud. Majority of the public does not know or understand what real digital painting is. We are a small group of artists and I just wanted to let you know that people like these could hurt our reputation.
People buy art for many reasons. Many value artists who can create, paint, sculpt etc. IMOP, photography is not a form creation. It is "capturing" a moment in time. While both are forms of art...hell just about anything can be called art...the two forms are completely different.
How people percieve digital painting ...time will tell.
"If one advances confidently in the direction of
his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he
has imagined, he will meet with a success
unexpected in common hours."
