I'm a new guy here. I joined up a few days ago mainly because I became interested in this digital art discussion. I have been reading the forum for quite some time and found my feelings hurt when a number of the posters here said that computer art has no soul. I've been doing computer graphics for a very long time and I don't mind folks judging my work for quality, but it does make me sad that someone would call it soulless. No mater what tools I use, the main tool is my imagination.

This discussion has always gone on in art. There were folks who said Picasso's art or Pollack's art or many others who took art a new direction had no soul. But that is what art is, a journey of discovery. I'm old enough to remember when folks said the same about acrylic paint. It was just fake oil, they said. A good artist finds tools that works for them and should be judged by their art and not those tools.

I think most complainers have not used a computer to create. It would help if you tried. If you always wanted to carve a Tiki, check out a free program that can be found on line called Sculptris. Ten minutes with this software may open your eyes to the possibilities of creating on a computer.
