so um, if i "paint" by putting a layer of dark color over my thing and then erasing where i want not-shadow/highlight and then blurring it and making it low opacity, does that count as painting or is that cheating....? kaomoji set 1 10/19 by megaman5000
i feel like its cheating and

not real painting ... .cuz all im doing is like smacking on layers and layers of that to get blended shading , like with my most recent posted shady thing and this commish i have yet to post, ,

i cant tell if they really count as a digital painting cuz i dont just like, apply the colors directly to the spot with my brushy brushy, i just kinda, use my brushy to decide "no not gonna put shading right there" while i erase all the spots i dont want shading..? is that like, reverse painting? cuz its not like im goin "ok computer now i want u to shade this" but its not like, how i see painty people paint things.... ;__;

it's still painting ! there are a bunch of different ways to paint ! there's even this technique in traditional painting where you start by laying down a base color and then wipe away paint where you want highlights : -)

In my mind digital painting is more a finished style than a technique!!

Everyone does stuff differently and it all usually counts as art! That seems fine, it's just your own technique UWU
