I have been really paying attention to the details in traditional media art. Noticing the brush stroke, textures and color blending. It has been a challenge to figure out how to emulate those techniques in the digital realm. Corel Painter 2016 has helped in that endeavor. Im not sure if you can say my work is totally digital anyway since I spend a fair amount of time with my watercolors, alcohol inks, ink pens and variety of papers. I have created many custom brushes from my traditional media work. I recently upgraded my scanner which makes all this possible. I also have mastered the trace image tool in Illustrator. This has always been a challenge for me getting a result i want from my hand-drawn art. Illustrator has been one of my most common software programs opened on my desktop these days. When I showed at ARTExpoNY a couple years ago one of the comments you hear from anti-digital patrons is "its too perfect, too sterile, lines are too perfect......yadda yadda yadda". These same reasons are why others love digital art. And digital artists are growing at every art show I've been to. I love both. I have never been one to stick with one type of media or style. I get bored and need to shake things up a little so I may work on one style for a week but then come Monday morning I want to try something else. And those who appreciate art are also constantly changing. Social media has a way of informing me whats trending with my art, some weeks my abstracts are popular and then collages, and then digital art will get huge hits. I like being versatile and hope that versatility is appreciated. Even if it's not, I'm still gonna do it LOL.
