As you may be aware, we are in the process of revisiting gallery descriptions and making sure that all of our submissions categories make sense and are useful to you. We also want to make sure that categories are mutually exclusive so that people don't submit their deviations to the wrong galleries/categories by mistake.
This process brought out a very interesting conversation among some members of the CV team. Specifically, we started talking about what, fundamentally, the difference between digital drawing and digital painting was. Does it depend on brush strokes? Is there some technique used on one but not the other? What sets the two apart?
. . . OR, are they essentially the same thing?
Here's what the submission guidelines currently say about digital drawing and digital painting:
Digital Drawing: Digital art drawings created using computer-aided drawing tools or digital techniques.
Digital Painting: Digital art using digital painting & airbrushing techniques.
. . . not helpful, right?
What are your thoughts?
We're talking to all of you hard-core digital artists out there now. How do YOU see this discussion? Is there REALLY a difference between digital drawing and digital painting? If so, what is it? You can respond to this blog, of course, but you can also respond to our poll here.
Thanks guys! dA rocks.
