I think I cake is fair game, and as long as the digital drawing is not a photo ran through a filter.

I don't know about computers. They can make anyone look like a artist but also take great skill. Maybe have those who use a computer explain their process.

i guess we should make everyone explain how they painted or sculpted each piece then. Digital art is the same as any art medium.

an example:

http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/lou...t-college.html

no photos used in it.

I have 1 question. Was all the art on your project or was it clip art or did you actually make it all from scratch?

None of it was clipart. I recently graduated with a BFA in Graphic design. I am an artist, btw. All of it is either hand drawn or drawn using the mouse. Ask anyone who tries it, drawing with the mouse is way harder then drawing with a stylus or pencil. You can tell the difference between digital art and a photo that has a filter over it. I dont know your age, but most people that are older do not see digital art as "real art". Also they assume that digital art is easier to do then traditional mediums.

No I am 20. I asked that question because I didn't want to jump the gun and say it's not art. I consider digital as art also. There are just too many people who run filters over a picture they took. I understand it's difficulties in drawing digital art, I've done it also. I am excited for this. Can't wait to see the final products !!!

Maybe a trained artist should look over the submissions. The average person thinks a photoshop filter is "artistic" whereas to the artist it screams "amateur."

Since I am a working professional I will not enter the contest, also this assures that I am being objective. I have a BA in Fine Arts, and a certificate of completion of one of the top digital art schools in the world. I will offer to be a judge on the digital pieces if it is needed. Good luck to everyone!

WOW I did not expect a debate, but really don't hold back if you want to enter, enter. I'm fairly good at picking out edited photos but honestly there are people that are just that good. If I have a question or concern about someones submission, don't worry Ill raise it.

Having a degree or being a trained artist does not necessarily mean producing the best artwork. I know several people with art degrees who are horrible artists and I also know untrained people who are great artists. It's all subjective!

Maybe there should be 2 categories, so that EVERYONE will feel free to enter.

Just my 2 cents...

Peace

(BTW I am an artist, but I do not make a living selling my art)

Like I said enter... if there is a group of people that really outclass others then maybe we do another contest later. Lets see it all and be the judge. I want to see the cake! Sometimes the subject or style matters more than the skill. So like I said don't hold back.

Three pages of talk and no art. Something seems backwards here. Bring on the art.

Is there a way to post a video of the artwork? For instance, I am doing a sculpture and would like all sides to be visible.

If you post it on youtube and send me the link to the email address I do not see it as a issue.
