Look! I made a funny!

Actually, I'm addressing one of my biggest pet peeves here. In the form of Art Student Owl!

People say this?

I'm starting to get the feeling from the internet that the only time the word "art" is used is to dismiss something which is subjective.

Sure the computer paints the picture for me. But only after I tell it where to put the paint.

Holy crap, a kick-ass art student owl post! So much win XD

Honestly, I don't think a single fair person with a functional brain would disagree with the point made here, I'm saying this as a traditional artist, myself. (Well, mostly traditional.)

You'd think so... but it seems like everything is getting bashed on in some way or another.

I had a professor in art school that I butted heads with quite frequently because he hated illustration and thought that it was the lowest form of art possible. To him, any modern art that wasn't abstract was crap.

Most abstract art isn't my cup of tea, but I do get where people are coming from with it and won't outright bash it.

When I hear people say that I ask them if that means photography isn't art. After all the camera does everything for you.

I've personally put as much as 8+ hours in setting up a picture to render, not including the final render. Mind you about 1/4 of that is small, low-rez renders to test how a certain change looks. I've found 3d renders to require quite a bit of skill, it's just a different skill than putting pencil/pen/brush to paper/canvas.

Also (because one can't edit their posts I have to double post... <.<; ).... amen on this use of artist owl for the decried issue. Digital art can be just as complex as traditional... unlike what some people seem to think :|

Doesn't ignorance make our world fun?
I'm sure if they were handed a tablet and photoshop they would quickly retract their statements that digital art is not art. I mean really.

Those who think digital art isn't art are idiots. So their opinions and thoughts don't matter. Specially if they are dense enough to think that the computer does all the work.

However at the same time I can see where traditional artist get annoyed at Digital artist. Because the tools and programs DOES let one take a lot of shortcuts and does let them do things a lot easier then a traditional medium can allow. For example doing layers, If something on the layer isn't laid down right you can simple "move" that layer. Or you can delete it entirely without any affect to your other content. In a traditional medium this simply isn't possible. You cannot just "Remove" or "move" a piece of content on a canvas without affecting the whole area. There are a lot... a LOT more examples to give.

But yeah. I can see why traditional artist might feel a bit more "Elitist" and feel that way about it. But those opinions who simply outright say it's not art or believe the computer actually does the drawing is just outright idiotic.

oh yes!

I agree, there are alot of people that seem to think that computer based art is easy as can be, requires no skill, and can be done very quickly.

Wrong, wrong, and uh..... wrong.

It is NOT easy.
you have to acquire the skills needed
and it takes ALLOT of time and patience

Most artists I know of would agree with you, but there are still some 'traditional' elitists who feel that digital art isn't really art. Some say the same about photography..

Well, you could reply to them, "Traditional art isn't art. The brush is doing all the work". In the end, only hand painting would be true art...

Nope, 'cause then their hands would be doing all the work, and their brain is doing nothing. The only true method of creation is for the artist to physically remove their brain and paint with it. Those elitists should try it =P

Since all I have in my hand right now is a yogurt container instead of some form of alcohol, I will still raise it for you. I couldn't agree more. Regardless of the media being used, the hand and the eye skills are what are most important.

Not necessarily eyes either take Eşref Armağan for example born with no eyes sight and does oil paintings, So in this case of traditional, skill rains truer, for digital alas sight is just as needed.
