New Art!

It's been a long time since I've created anything that isn't for a larger scale project. I wanted to get something done that I could knock out in a couple of hours and just chill out to, so I did a painting.

What do you guys think about signatures in digital art? Personally, I think it makes it look a little more legit.

I personally prefer that there are no signatures on digital art, but I completely understand why you would do that. Although if it's integrated in a creative way, that's awesome.

I agree, sigs do make it feel more "official" like you could see it in a gallery.

I'm front paging it! Two more and you'll be open for scouting :)

JamesLee responds:

Wooo! Thanks a heap, Tom!

Being married to an artist, I can tell you signatures in pieces are pretty much the norm for established artists. It is kind of like a "trademark", so, if you deviate your style a bit people can still see a signature and tell it was created by you.

JamesLee responds:

It's pretty standard in traditional art, but for a lot of digital art I see they don't use one. It beats using a watermark in my mind, which doesn't really offer anything of value to the piece besides protection for the artist.
