Seeing as we’re in the Digital Age, it is no surprise that more artists are embracing digital tools to explore their creative process. That is not to say the tradtional medium doesn’t still bang.

On that note, if you’re a digital artist, we can bet our five fingers that you will identify with more than one of the things below.

1. People coming to you for free art

They see how awesome your art is, and want something similar for themselves but expect you to work for free. When you protest, they offer you publicity or whine about your fees being exorbitant and how they know someone who can do it cheaper. Ehn go and meet them nau.

2. Creative ideas swimming in your head

Call it the creative’s curse or blessing depending on how you look at it. There’s always one new creative concept or the other, some so urgent that they wake you up at odd hours.

3. Obsession with digital tools and softwares

Since your work is largely dependent digital tools, there is a likelihood for you to get obsessed with the next cool thing. After all, it’s for the sake of efficiency. Your room would probably look like this.

4. The fulfillment that comes from your completed work

Nothing beats that feeling of working on a particular art project for hours, days, or even weeks and seeing how lit the end result is. It even slaps more when other people genuinely give you feedback like “You sabi work” and “burst brain”.

5. You see the big picture – even when others don’t

There are some big ideas or concepts whose end results which you can envision in your mind’s eye, but others might not relate. Some will laugh or call you crazy, don’t mind them jare. Carry on.
