Art Student Owl:  Digital Art by Ulario Art Student Owl:  Digital Art by Ulario
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.

Nothing quite like being nuked by "Happy Tree" brand missiles.

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 :|
