Welcome to the world of Digital Art. I am Shannon Patrick Baldridge and I will be your tour guide through this journey of limitless possibilities.
 
 

Digital art is art created on a computer in digital form. Digital art can be purely computer-generated, such as fractals, or taken from another source, such as a scanned photograph, or an image drawn using vector graphics software using a mouse or graphics tablet. The term is usually reserved for art that has been non-trivially modifed by a computing process (such as a computer program, microcontroller or any electronic system capable of interpreting an input to create an output); digitized text data and raw audio and video recordings are not usually considered digital art in themselves, but can be part of a larger project.

Here are several images from one of my favorite digital artists (Erlend Mork)

In order for one to truely know where they are going, one must first know where they have been. Here are some historical photos of the information on my timeline.

This photo displays the difference between raster and vector images. Such is the basis for graphic art. Image editing programs such as Adobe Photoshop manipulate raster images. Programs called Vector Graphic Editors such as Adobe Illustrator are used to create vector images that are resolution-independent.
