Decided I wanted some practice in coloring with Photoshop, so I found an old drawing that I had copied from a picture (that I can't find any longer) a couple of years back, and ended up with this... Might not be a complicated process, considering I just splashed on some color and filters etc, but it was time demanding and fun ^^
I also have a pressure print of a draenei at school, but the teacher who has it doesn't technically work there, so she won't be there until she comes to give us our grades, and by then I'll have forgotten the whole thing, so... meh :/
Also: Love the Noblegarden post ^^

Hello again fan art thread! Is Friday again, and by god I think all my homework is done (and if it's not I'm really tired of playing phone tag over my immunization records anyway).
You guys are posting awesome stuff, as always. :3
(if you need help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUFcfXgW_dQ )
I hate the photoshopped/edited "fan art" like most of the stuff in this thread > <
Soon my masterpiece of speedy will be done... Wait and see a beautiful piece of art!
http://akhirah.deviantart.com/favour...et=72#/d19vblm, then I hope you get a nasty, long lasting charley horse in your drawing hand. :/
Digital art is different from traditional in some minor aspects, but both take time, patience and creativity.
Funny enough, my skill in digital painting has actually enhanced my traditional painting skills.
By the way emilylorange, I love your comics and style. It's so playful!

Also, I have not drew or uploaded any art into this thread yet. I plan to draw speedy (the pet) from wow soon and upload it. I know people will rip on my drawing as it will be done by hand and not look fantastic (my drawing skills are awful! haha). But it shall be fun to do
I would like to note, that not once did I say that digital fan art did not take time/patience/skill etc. This was just assumed and then the various insults towards me began. Just to clarify, I was merely saying I prefer hand drawn art to digital art, "like most of the stuff in this thread". However, your reactions did make me giggle I meant no harm.

See, you stated that you 'hate' digital art first, then said it wasn't your thing, then once again stated that you hated it. That's just plain rude. Do you see anyone here stating their 'hatred' for traditional art? No. You come in here and the very first words you type are rude and smug. Art is art, and no matter what anyone says, everyone's art here is worthy, whether it's been done with copics, pens, pencils, paints, or a tablet and stylus. It seems to me you're just insecure and trying to make yourself feel better by implying that traditional art is better.
And for fuck's sake stop referring to digital art as "art." As I've already said, art is art, no matter what tool was used.
There is also no such thing as "the software does essentially "do it all"- in a few clicks." I have spent days and hours on digital paintings. I paint pretty much how a traditional artist paints. The only major differences are that I don't have to clean up, and I don't have to spend wasted hours trying to mix paint properly.
Oh, and also for your information some people are extremely allergic to oils and acrylics, that's why they use the digital medium.
There is no difference between digital and traditional art only the medium used and it takes discipline to look at the screen rather than the tablet to draw. You insult us digital artists posting our work and other digital artists and I would like to say you also insult the professionals in the industry that are the very reason we draw fanart. Not everything they do is for the job alone, even they do fanart. It is the way you expressed your opinion. Had you simply said "I like traditional art more than digital" we wouldn't be having this discussion however there was no reason for you to make your opinion aloud as you did. You could have easily said, "I'd like to see more traditional art please," and no one would be the wiser.
And no the software does NOT "do it all" in a few clicks. I know photoshop like the back of my hand and I still must work for hours if I must on my art. Yes there are tricks you can do to make certain effects but you still must work for it and even more so to make it achieve believability. The effort is the same between traditional and digital. Todd Lockwood is an excellent example.
Think before you post please.
EDIT: Posted this during the time Rachel's was posted..
Everything she has said I 110% agree with. Yeah I don't have to clean up and I don't have to spend hundreds of dollars for materials and brushes and I also don't have to worry about my paint drying up or my markers becoming useless.

share the love guys don't hate! D: my pen tab is broken so i had to draw with my mouse. ._.
i have to say i love seeing the brush strokes on a painting, but i also love the crazy intense detail you can get with working on a computer, both mediums have there advantages. so love no hate. :3
I can't say what I want to without an infraction, so I'll say the PG version: You are a jerk. Contribute something positive or get out. Your attitude is not welcome.
Since your smug post is best summarized as 'lol why u so mad tho', I'm guessing you're just a troll anyway.
