Re: What are the unique benefits of making art digitally?
For me, the "digital" in "digital art" increasingly reacquires its original meaning.\n\nI believe that digital visual "art working" is very similar to photography in almost all respects. Both mechanically presented images that can be manipulated, the darkroom analogous to the keyboard, mouse and monitor.\n\nPhotography was not considered an art form until the quality, beauty and uniqueness of some photographs (and photographers) simply overwhelmed all opposition.\n\nI have used Macs since 1991 to create and facilitate my "art"—as much as a tool as an end in itself. In using my scanner, digital camera, my original drawings and paintings, and Photoshop I have learned and evolved. \n\nWith CS3, O.S. X, and my iMac 24" my monitor in relation to this discussion is now another easel. The elegant, powerful transparency of this system requires little more than basic eye/hand coordination.\nAnd an artist. The quality, beauty and uniqueness of a result to be determined...
