    What da........?? You posted that same thing twice before. What are you trying to really do with this thread ??

    You managed to copy a bird from someone and make it into a vector piece of art...... so what ?? Get over it, already.

    Is there some time limit that after which something becomes art? Before which it's not? Still nothing more that digital farkling around no matter how long it takes. No technology, no art it would seem. Which lends some credence to the notion that the technology is at least as much art as what someone does with it.

    And just what is that creature in the middle of the sky? A donkey? A wildebeest? A bandicoot?

    So Sidney the Artist starts this thread wondering if digital art is art. Days go by and people reply with their thoughts and the he post his 75 hours of work with Sidney the Artist watermark all over it.
    Will have to make a metal note on not responding to his questions next time.
    ...bob, Bandicoot.

    In the thread I stated "It would be cool so see some digital art from you digital artists:)". The watermarks are part of my business formalities and it is no more than that. Thank you.

    Thanks everyone, Truly!...being in an industry that is "Visual" to say the least, is a great business to be in and I wouldn't trade it in for another profession:)

    I realize what the watermarks are for Sidney. I just felt used that someone like you, who calls himself "TheArtist" considers digital art as art would ask if it was.
    Not upset or anything like that. But next time I drive up to your house and you ask me if that is a car I am driving I will give a different answer to fit the tone of the conversation, since you already know the answer.
    But your an artist and eccentric.

    Johnny, I understand.
    I have been a professional artist for a long time and never planned on calling myself Sidney the artist, I am just an artist. It was after years of calling customers and saying this is Sidney the guy that's going to do a mural etc and them responding "who.....sidney who?". Me responding " I'm Sidney and going to do art for your boss"...and them responding Oh, Sidney The Artist, yes hold on a moment etc..etc. In addition to that, potential customers would call and for some reason, ask for Sidney the artist. Well, one day I told myself, I might as well buy the name. If you met me you would probably see that I one of the lease eccentric artist:)....I am a business man.
    Thank you, Sidney L Muniz

    Hello JS,

    I went out of town for business when I posted and did not reply to your comment and pics. Wow, you are no joke!! :) Awesome and top-notch art & graphics. I wish I knew how you did that car....all your work is exceptional.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Sidney

    You could drop a deuce on the lawn, charge people to see it and call it art.

    Just watch Moana, the digital HD animated movie by Disney with my granddaughter. Beautiful colors and entertaining to get my vote for a true art form.

    Well said....it does take flair of personality, knowledge etc. The good thing is that we all have great tools for creating art, graphics and other visual elements. Thanks, Sidney

    Before I offer an answer to your question, can please define what you mean by art?
