i put a lot of ambition in to this work, both in storytelling and execution, for instance i focused on very subtle cool to warm gradients across the background of the piece and really tried to give the standard poses some character, although they are in simple poses i think it is easy to pick up on the emotions that both the traditional and digital worlds are expressing. as for subject matter i tried to use brighter colors than i am used to on the side depicted as digital and i actually mixed $5.00 pencil crayons with $5.00 felt markers and although cheap i like how the color turned out. the traditional world was made with pencil and charcoal, i found this red charcoal and i fell in love with it. i wanted the character to be more abstract because that seems to be more utilized by traditional artists and i also thought the setting should be more natural so i settled with a cave as the location and i feel like this cave was able to give a good feel to that aspect.

now as for story; i would like to keep it up to interpretation for the most part however in my own thoughts the story goes as follows:

artists are plagued by the envy that comes along with the two different types of art, artists who perform on digital see traditional art as something out skill set, logically the traditional artists seem weak in terms of opportunity, they have a lack of tools and more difficulty with refinement yet still produce pieces that blow the minds of many and outshine some of the best digital artworks, the traditional artists are not held back by the self doubt being injected through envy and thus is seen as an abnormality, they look at that world with fear, curiosity and respect. as for the traditional artists, dispite all of the training and experience they have with traditional works it seems to be an uphill battle to keep up with digital artists, one mistake and a piece is ruined but they are strong enough to produce masterpieces day by day and are not held back by physical restraints, the traditional artist believes they may be out shined and looks at the digital world with fear, curiosity and respect. in the end both worlds are the same, they are talented and amazing in their own ways.
