Not to be confused with CGI (computer generated imagery).
A Digital Painting is produced much in the same way that an artist world working in classical media (pencil, charcoal, oils, watercolors, pen and ink, etc.). The principal difference in the digital media is the broad array of tools, techniques and control afforded the artist in determining the final form of the image. While Digital Painting doesn't preclude the use of CGI elements and effects, it is primarily a hand-done work. -J̸ᴿᴡ̸
