The Rising Popularity of Digital Art

The ultimate goal of any artist is to be able to share their imagination and their experiences with the world. Everyone has his or her own way of going about this process.

As time passes and technology advances, it gives art new means and mediums to be used to express these thoughts and experiences. One of these new mediums is digital art, which has surged in popularity during the past few decades.

But why?

Digital ArtOne theory is that it’s accessible. Digital art comes in so many forms.  Some of the categories include:

  • Graphic Design
  • Computer Art
  • Videography
  • Special Effects

Digital art has been an interesting expansion in the world of art because there are so many ways to expand your skills through self-teaching. With tutorials and videos to watch about programs and digital art techniques, it’s truly an accessible art form.

From those who are now creating whole books on their computers, to those who are putting together their own television and YouTube series, and the myriad others in between, they can all assure you that digital art is on the rise.

In addition, more people from younger generations are becoming increasingly comfortable with computers and utilizing technology to perfect their crafts. Instead of worrying about how to remove paint that went somewhere it shouldn’t have, you can simply hit “undo” or backspace to get rid of errant markups in your process.

There are even tools to make the transition easier. If you’ve ever used a drawing tablet, for instance, you’re drawing on a pad but you’re not making a mess on a canvas. This is appealing to many who are attempting to embrace the advances in technology.
