2 Common mistakes I made as a beginner digital artist
Posted On March 11, 2020
Digital art is more difficult than any other form of art pre-existing art. n matter how much you have experienced in the art world; digital art will not come easy.
As an artist,
there are still multiple mistakes I made as a beginner in digital art. I had to
learn everything about art from scratch and make all the right changes to
ensure I get exactly what I want. Some of these mistakes are common for most
artists and they are quite easy to correct.
Learning from my
mistakes was a big leap for me in the digital art world. It helped me reduce
the chances of failure and I had plenty of time to learn and perfect a new art
Here are some
common mistakes I made as a beginner on digital art and how you can avoid them
I always found
myself starting a digital drawing without any ideas. As a beginner, you should
always start a new painting when you have your mind set on it. typically,
artists start their drawings on a while piece of canvas without any direction
and most of the times end up with a good piece of art. I found out the hard way
that this does not work for digital art for beginners.
The problem is,
starting your digital painting with a definite piece of art is not always going
to be easy. Keep in mind that frustration will definitely come your way.
important you should do before you begin the drawing/painting is to create
several idea variations in your head. This is so helpful for people who do not
come up with a definite idea or direction in which they want their piece of art
to end in.
As long as you
know the basics, creating a piece of art won’t be that hard for you. you are
allowed to heck for inspirational art pieces online to use them for practices.
Overdoing the details
Every artist has
a style they like to use in real life, and this also applies when it come to
digital art. the thing is, in real life art we find ourselves wanting to
include multiple details all over the paper as well as refining the space in
the painting. I learnt this the hard way but tis are two things you do not want
to do when creating digital art.
Do not obsess
over trying to make the art piece as detailed as you can because we all know
that at some point you are bound to overdo it and ruin the pictures. It’s
possible that you will end up stuck trying to make the piece of art as good as
you made it the first time.
Finally, you want
to create a painting that is more than just that; it should be able to create
an idea, concept, story and be captivating in other people’s eyes too. Choosing
the right lighting, elements, contrast and composition while making your piece
of art is the first step to creating an excellent piece of digital art.
