Welcome to the Digital Art Group!
This is the place to discuss digital art - share tips and techniques, learn about different computer programs and tools, and ask questions.
Click here to learn how to upload images into your forum posts (which is important so that people can see your art within the post, rather than as an attachment link beneath your post).
Before uploading your digital art, make sure your work fits this definition: "Computer-generated art that is created by hand (i.e. using a tablet, stencil etc), either from scratch or from a reference source."
Under this definition, photographs that have been slightly tweaked (photo-edited) are not accepted as "digital art" on this site - for example, running a photograph through a few Photoshop filters and displaying it as a finished work of digital art. Even though this can result in some beautiful imagery, we decided early on that we don't want photography on this site because there are many sites out there to share photos, and feel that edited/filtered photos belongs on a photography site and not here.
