stupid articleEdit

digital painting does not mean imitating traditional painting. you cannot compare apples to pears. digital painting offers much more variety than traditional painting. but it needs an artist to make it alive not a button or pen pusher. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.238.49.78 (talkcontribs) 16:49, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Agreed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.151.248.137 (talk) 12:21, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

I'd question that as there are a great deal of artists who use digital tools to produce work they would have once produced with oil, watercolour or inks and that many of the general public would have a hard time picking as digital. Digital is a different medium but it does inherit all the characteristics from the various fine arts like painting and photography as well as adding it's own.

Having said that I do think this article needs quite a bit of re-writing with better links, references and definitions. Guthriej (talk) 01:02, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

link updateEdit

changed the link leading to Deviantart, since it was outdated.

It's hard to find the link you are referring to because there are no footnotes. This style of bare referencing has been out of date for years. --Adoniscik(t, c) 00:34, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

added new info.Edit

New picture example. Added text concerning digital painting 'tools'

I added new image in technique section to illustrate digital painting in steps. It has copyright ©, which as allowed to be put by its owner Daipayaan Chakraborty

Removed ImagesEdit

Certian images have been removed by me because they have been added to a category that makes them speediable, most likely Category:Images with no copyright tag. Kilo-Lima|(talk) 16:34, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

New ImageEdit

I've added a new image. It's my own, so there shouldn't be any issues with it. escapologist File:Exquisite-kate.png 12:58, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

Added new image for illustration, which was allowed by its owner to be put here. Thanks

Links SectionEdit

With all due respect to Kathryn Smith, I don't think her work is relevant to this article. If you look at her website and the explanation of her technique, it is more "photo manipulation" or similar to rotoscoping with a single image. Typically in the digital painting community this way of working is most often frowned upon. Here are some links I would suggest starting with:

http://forums.cgsociety.org/
http://www.goodbrush.com/
http://www.furiae.com/

Also, I don't understand why at the top it says "See also: Vector graphics" The only thing that links the two is that they are both art and created on the computer, and that's about it. In the category of computer generated art, they are miles away from each other.

Agree. There are so much digital artists in the internet that there's no need for some examples, especially if these examples had no deeper information about the topic. I removed all links, except the one from devianArt 84.142.225.44 16:30, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

My response is that you are incorrect. If you look at my art work you will see that most of it is digital painting. I do include some photo manipulations on my site as well but I am a digital painter first and foremost. Thanks, Kathryn Smith.

Image copyright problem with Image:MacpaintWP.pngEdit

The image Image:MacpaintWP.png is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

"Computer painting"Edit

Why is there a Computer painting article? Isn't this the same thing? Esn (talk) 09:13, 1 November 2008 (UTC)


'Computer painting' vs 'Digital Painting'Edit

While superficially this seems redundant I think reading the articles concerned reveals why they both have a place.

Digital painting as defined here is more akin to pictorial fine arts where computer painting (perhaps a misnomer) is closer to computer science. In the former an artist uses the computer as a painting tool, software and hardware are used that mimic and go beyond modern traditional (physical) painting while with the latter we have art generated from formulas, like fractal geometry, that are converted into visual information that has a pleasing aesthetic appeal but not the literal mark making of a painter.

The resulting images are aesthetically quite different and the methods of production equally so. Guthriej (talk) 00:48, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Historically Important Software / Hardware MissingEdit

The history section could be strengthened by acknowledging the key players in the invention of digital painting.

The article should include mention of Alvy Ray Smith, who along with Dick Shoup at Xerox PARC, created SuperPaint in 1974, and later Paint (8-bit, with color look-up tables) and Big Paint (24-bit and later 32-bit) at N.Y.I.T. Alvy Ray Smith is credited as co-inventor of the alpha channel.

The Quantel Paintbox was the first commercially used painting application that featured pressure-sensitivity or touch-sensitivity. It was a huge leap from previous applications, and while it was not widely known outside professional imaging circles, should not be omitted from this discussion.

The link to youtubeEdit

In the footer of this page there is a link to a youtube video. Is it a spam? Or, if it isn't, can we replace it?Samuele Papa (talk) 17:43, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

2 references?Edit

There are 2 sections called reference, what in the world? Who ever did that needs to fix it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.220.166.81 (talk) 19:30, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Multiple editsEdit

I fixed the problem with two sections called Reference. I also added text, with references, to section Sketchpad. I added several graphic tablet manufacturers because I didn't think it was right to only mention Wacom when there are so many alternatives from other manufacturers. I investigated the subject of graphic tablets for two weeks before I bought my first graphic tablet, and continued to research the subject for some time more because the information in wikipedia did not give me enough information. Wikipedia only mentioned Wacom and did not describe how a graphic tablet works and what programs they work with. After doing so much investigations I felt a need to complete the texts in wikipedia to simplify the choice of a graphic tablet for others with the knowledge and some reference links which I got a lot of help from.Roger491127 (talk) 07:34, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Can't verify Reference #1Edit

Link in citation [1] of the article leads to moca.virtual.museum --which doesn't provide any basis for the Place of painting in digital art section.

I dug around the site for some time, still to no avail. Consider deleting this section if no one else can find it, either.
