Its Not Just Digital Art

Part One - Staging


People often get the impression that digital art is about nothing more than using a computer program to create art. In some cases that is true, but in other cases its definitely NOT. 
Good art is as much about planning and staging as it is about creativity. Take a simple painting of a tree for example. The human eye takes in the whole piece of art. It sees a tree, which is what the artist intended. But the artist (if they are truly a master) take into consideration more than a tree. They consider the bark of the tree, the texture of the sky behind it, the angle and slant of the light coming through the leaves and the color and tones of the grass around it.
