Frequently asked questions
Simply put, digital painting is the process of painting, not on paper or canvas, but on a computer screen or tablet. Specially designed software programs make it possible to apply “brushstrokes” using a stylus or mouse. The artist can use a program that mimics traditional watercolor, oil, impasto, charcoal, acrylic, pastels, airbrushing, and other media. Tools include digital brushes, pens, and pencils of varying sizes, shapes, and textures. Digital painting differs from other forms of digital art, particularly computer-generated art, in that it doesn’t involve a computer rendering from a model. In other words, an artist is still needed to create the painting. Since the process is digital, artists can easily undo or redo layers or portions of a painting without difficulty. Also, a virtually unlimited palette of colors is available in digital painting. Many digital artists work with conceptual art in connection with films, TV, and video games.
