I’ve had a bit of a thing with digital art recently (as you can see from my past posts). I only recently came across it and have been hypnotised by the beauty and colours. So it’s fitting to look at it for part of this project. In terms of how we read the image is massively dominated by lighting. Unlike painting, computers can create luminous and brighter lighting which is emphasised by the constant light box style backdrop from the computer. The lighting is created, it is not real but changes the whole dynamic of the images. this is why surrealism and fantasy have been massive genres to emerge in digital art, all due to the fictional light which creates an unreal fantasy world vibe.
This light almost reaches a pure colour, creating beautiful aesthetic pieces of artwork which are read by us as a mysterious, surreal fantasy world.
