Taking Digital Art to the Next Level






Digital Art Revolution, by Scott Ligon (Watson-Guptill) is a very enjoyable and inspiring book of  creative digital art ideas, theory  and instructions. The intro chapter, "Welcome to the Revolution" makes it clear that it is written with an artist's perspective, not that of a technician who has found some neat tricks, and the chapter about "Finding Your Own Voice" has many great ideas to include in discussions of problem solving and creative thinking. It covers both compositing and painting techniques with examples from a wide variety of digital artists, covering many styles, making this real "eye candy".

Nice blog and interesting review! I am also a digital artist. If I had the money to afford that book, I would purchase it, as I am still learning how to get a grasp on my art style.

Art is about creativity, imagination and experimentation – in many ways there are no ‘rules’, no right or wrong. Art has also long been valued for it’s importance as a medium of expression – and is particularly valuable in this respect for children who may not have the linguistic skills to communicate yet – a picture after all ‘paints a thousand words’ as the old adage goes.

Arts and Education

Education is an essential human virtue. Man becomes 'man' through education. He is what education makes him. It has been rightly said that without education, man is a splendid slave, reasoning savage.
