Common Misconceptions: Digital Art
Common Misconceptions: Digital Art
Hello everyone! This is the second installment of the series of “common misconceptions” surrounding different areas in art. This blog will cover the most prevalent myths that surround the medium of digital art. (it's chock full of super sweet images, check out the wonderful artists!)
:bulletpink: Digital Art requires less skill than Traditional art
This is probably the top ranking myth. There is no “shortcut” when it comes to making good quality art period.  It is not any easier to paint a beautiful image on a computer than it is with a brush and canvas. Most people who make that argument don’t really have any personal experience with creative software or they chalk up digital art as simple drawings in MS Paint.
:bulletpink: Digtial Art requires less practice, anyone can do it
Like any skill out there, digital art needs the same amount of practice as you would need with a pen and paper. A

Common Misconceptions: Traditional Art
First of all, hello!:wave: It's been almost a year since I contributed a blog post to this lovely group so I want to say hi I'm back folks! I have a lot of artsy things to share with you all that I've learned (and am still learning) so hang on tight! While I was thinking what to write as my first topic, I decided to kind of go back to the beginning as far as our thinking as artists goes in the creation process. I've come up with a short series called "Common Misconceptions" just to debunk some myths and misguided trends that are so often part of what we experience as we grow. This first "Common Misconceptions" topic will focus on traditional art.
Traditional is better than digital because it takes more talent and skill
WRONGWRONGWRONGWRONGWRONGWRONGWRONG. Did I say that was wrong, I'll say it again for emphasis WRONG! Like all mediums, digital art is simply different than traditional art in the same way photography is different than fi

No more excuses, it's time to improve your art!
You’re probably well acquainted with the old proverb “practice makes perfect.” And while I don’t fully believe that perfection is attainable, because the very notion of perfection is somewhat subjective, getting better at anything requires both time and effort. I’m going be very blunt here; if you want to improve your artistic skill you need to actually practice.
My heart goes out to everyone here who is struggling to improve so don’t feel that I’m purposely singling you out here. However throughout my time on dA (and in real life) I’ve met artists begging for advice on how to quickly improve and sadly when I tell them to begin practicing the excuse is always ‘well, I don’t really have the time for that.’
And I ain’t got time for yo attitude.
:bulletred: You do have the time

Next Week It Is
A lot of you are going to crown me, but once again for the millionth time, please be patient. A lot of these requests/art trade are almost done, but it is going to have to take me another week to finish a lot of them. Also, this would explain to one of the reasons to why I won't do commissions, but I promise all of you that it will be sometime next week. Can't be this weekend because I'll be out of state. On top of that, I hit rock bottom in the last several days to be honest and didn't feel like working on any art piece until today. Sorry, but it happens. Let's just say.. some personal things came up and yeah.... at least the Internet hasn't been giving me much grief though, but still... I promise that it will be sometime next week and yes, it will be a load. Like at 9-10 of them, if anything.

Fall of Man
I remember thinking: if this were a story, it would be alright.  Even tragedies have meaning when someone else holds the pen.  But this is not a story.  Unless it is.
There was me cradling you in the wreckage of a building; and in the distance, the sounds of running and screaming and alarms of ambulances, everyone calling for help, and there, another building collapsing.
A snowflake fell on your forehead and for a moment it seemed more important than the blood, more important than bombs falling from the sky, the war that had begun.  Blocks away perhaps a television was somehow still on, perhaps it screamed propaganda.  All I knew was you had no reason to be punished.
People can’t run with broken legs, and you also had a broken arm, and when I heard another woman scream for her beloved to come back to life, I knew you would die.
I should have remembered what you whispered to me, but the planes above were too loud.  If I had heard your last word

FFM24: It's Raining Men
She's finally done it, Dani realized as lightning streaked across the sky, the damn writer had lost the last bit of grey matter keeping her from the cuckoo bin. The forecaster had predicted rain, but not this kind of rain. The first drop to hit the pavement was six feet tall of glistening, rippling sex beast. He should have died instantly, but since the writer was out of her vulcan mind, he landed gently beside the first and just as shirtless.
“Love me,” he said, holding out a hand.
Dani groaned, pretending not to look. This was so wrong.
All around the world, people stopped to watch this mysterious rain. Traffic stalled. Inside, the forecaster who had predicted a wonderful summer shower hid in his office, studying the readouts. It just wasn't possible. Men don't fall from the sky like rain.
“You've done it now,” Dani shouted, “Don't pretend you can't hear me. I know you're typing this right now. You have to stop this.”
Kaleen, the writer, ignored he
