Digital art has become very popular because this is the time of science and technology. People are using various tools and techniques to make artistic designs. It is a method that uses the digital technology for creating artistic works. In the olden days it is also known by the names like computer art and multimedia art and many more.
The latest ways of making digital art has brought a transformation into drawing, painting, music, etc. Those who use these processes to produce art are called digital artists. Today different types of applications are used in the formation of beautiful images and sceneries. They are created with the combination of discrete of discontinuous numeric value range. We can also understand it as a pixel that is very tiny constituent of an image. It consists of many dots and spaces and these are very tiny parts and they combine themselves to make a pixel and many pixels to a picture.
There are different aspects of producing the digital data like vector, digital painting, mixed media, fractals etc. In a vector technique some software like Corel Draw, Illustrator and some more, help the designer in making the graphics. Another important thing for the designer is to have some basic skills of sketching that helps a lot in this. Since these are created with the use of a computer the environment for them is virtual unless and until the prints are not taken out. We can put different colors and shapes to the desired image. Sketching skills also help the designer in making cartoons as well. Today there is a good demand of the people who are good in making sketches in the field of animation.
Another is fractal graphics; it is also going popular again these days. These types of images are formed by the use of specifically designed mathematical software that uses the mathematics formulae. The interesting thing is we can see the finer things of these images when we get it zoom. They are made very fine. The next one is mixed media and digital painting. Mixed media is the incorporation of sketching, photography and drawings to form the desired graphics or animation. It can easily be done with the help of Photoshop application. It is commonly used by the photographers to edit their photographs after shooting. In the same way we can use another form that is known as digital painting.
Here we can easily use the painting oils, colors, and charcoals, acrylic color shades etc. digitally using the computer. Here also we can use the specialized software for this. At an advanced stage different types of brushes, color, pencils and many more drawing tools can be used to create the images.
