So, some ignorant person had to go and tell me that Photoshop is not art.

That "The computer does all the work".

She's obviously never slaved over a picture for 14 hours.

Still, it opened my eyes to the fact that I'm getting a little rusty in traditional media.

So, you may not see me doing much Photoshop stuff for a while.

Instead, I'll start with pencil sketches, and eventually move on to colored things, all made in traditional media.

But I'll still use Photoshop to enhance them. Since I created a custom action to remove notebook paper lines, I can doodle in my notebook without fear!

Due to FAC's quality standards and 3-a-day restriction, most of these sketches will be heading to DA, so take a look there if it seems like I'm not doing anything,

Oh, and ignore the horrendous proportions. I was focusing more on the pose than anything. If I decide to refine this I will correct that.

kittyshootingstarI followed an excellent tutorial by London (FAC is really laggy right now and I don't want to spend 4 hours refinding it. Look in his gallery and you should be able to locate it.)

And for ease of use I created an action in Photoshop, here's a pretty nice tut for that:

ShadowsGirlfriend1_0Yeah, I've been getting the "Photoshop work is not art" too. Someone even told me it was "cheating" and I lol'd so hard.

If anything, tradtional mediums will always be superior to me, but right now, I can't get my grubby little hands on all the different materials and tools. Photoshop on the other hand, is literally everywhere if you look hard enough. Photoshop also doesn't really require school to learn how use it; The internet is a wonderful substitute teacher.

Oh god, I ranted XD It's a good topic to argue about I guess. You should totally practice with your pencils and other things though. I'm learing painting and stuff in class now, it's a very fun experience!

kittyshootingstarOh, maybe we talked to the same person! LAWL

And all we're doing in my art class is "modern art".

I still lol every time I hear that phrase. My theater teacher went to the museum of modern art in New York, and said there was an exhibit whose title was: "Lights that turn on and off every three seconds".

If that's art, I'd be rich. Just turning my light on and off.

ShadowsGirlfriend1_0Oh, everything is art. Chipped paint? ART. Fallen tree? ART. Moldy sandwhich? DEFINATELY ART.

I nearly cried when my art teacher told us "open your trash cans, draw what's inside." I couldn't do it though; trash was too stinky lol

But I guess it all amounts up to how creative you are with your environment. I make the simplest things, teacher says I will be the best scholar EVAR. I just laugh it off, I don't want a ridiculous ego like the other kids.

Gah, that exhibit sounds like a mini-rave ;D I'll have to find that museum!
