Mixed Media 1 : Poster Color + Digital Rendering
by Arch Ian Jay Bantilan
“Art is not about the tools used to create them. It is about the vision, message, and emotion the artist is trying to convey.” Digital art is much like any other art form but using different tools than traditional art.
The rules of art are still rules, whether one creates analog or digital artwork. The computer, however, offers an infinite number of possible combinations of colors and special effects. This is a blessing to those who have mastered the combinations, and a curse to those would-be digital artists lost in the complexity of it all.
Nothing compares to an architectural illustration masterfully painted by an artist with knowledge in the practices of architecture, construction of buildings, and who is fully versed in the expression of color and composition.
