Using techniques... digital & trad. medium

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 14, 2012, 10:01 AM

:bulletgreen: I'm wondering what kind of technique are people using while they draw traditional and digital media... for example: If they draw traditional on the same way as digital (painting, coloring, shading...)...or opposite. Because for me digital and traditional are the same. It was always annoying when teachers in school told me that digital is much easier than traditional...that in digital you just press once with the brush and you already have whole image. Hahaha... that's noooooooot true at all :D I spend more time drawing digital works than traditional... ;P Then I always say to people like that...Try and see for yourself if it's easier than traditional :giggle:

:bulletgreen: Well, what I want to say...and ask. Last years I drew more digital drawings than traditional, so when I started to paint canvas, I drew on the same way as if it would be digital painting...only that I had one layer ;P If you saw my digital tutorials... at first I did basic colors, then I started to draw shadows and highlights...and so on. Exactly the same as digital. :la:

:bulletgreen: Cuz I drew digital so much my brain changed, so when I draw traditional I always think what would I do if this drawing would be digital... and this technique works for me :la: I want to know if I'm only person like that, or you help yourself with other techniques which you learned too. :D

:bulletgreen: People always ask me how I do my digital and traditional work... probably if I would do a tutorial for both stuff, they would be completely the same (only that I wouldn't mention layers anywhere). :lmao:

Other news
:bulletgreen: I can't believe that today I actually checked my WHOLE inbox... and all images from people who I watch (I had them like 9000 ;P). Lately I didn't have time to check all new stuff, so inbox was growing...and growing...and growing :giggle: Till the number became like 20.000...:faint: So today I sit and check them all. So empty inbox I had maybe 1 or 2 years ago :rofl: :ashamed:

I totally agree with you ! I draw traditionally and digitally, and these technics are very similar. The point is, right now, I can paint traditionally ! Of course, I'm not a master on traditionnal canvas, but I'm not afraid anymore to paint on that surface.

And, I can make an original art easier, because of the digital art. So, NO, digital painting is NOT easier than traditional painting.
tincek-marincek Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2012  Professional General Artist're totally the same as me :omg: :la: Even with the
traditional art. Before I was always afraid to draw on canvas,
because I never know if look OK...or if I'll know to paint it
at all. But cuz of digital art I made up concepts and composition
a lot easier...and I'm not afraid to use paints any more :la:

I have such a hard time doing digital...but that's probably because I'm just starting, though I look at digital and painting the same way, since you have to work up to your layers...well, I do ^^;

I have to get digital ._____. :cry:
tincek-marincek Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2012  Professional General Artist
Yea...beginnings at digital are always hard. But when you paint more
and more, then it'll become easier. :D
XLEHX Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2012  Student General Artist
Yeah....hopefully T.T *nods*

When starting a traditional painting many artists paint the entire artwork in monotone, then paint in color on top of that.
Basic principles are the same, but paint is very different from pixels, some effects are very hard to achieve in traditional (perfect gradients and glows, for example, or certain effects like painting with light add + for secular bloom) are terribly hard in traditional. The color gamut is also very different.
I find the depth and variety of physical paint bush strokes hard to reproduce in digital, also the randomness that is characteristic of traditional art. I can't remember ever mistaking one for the other. But I think they complement each other beautifully :D

If there's one thing I miss when doing traditional work, it's the "Undo" :XD:
