It is made even more special by the digital artwork that we see on websites, but it was being created since before the internet became something that was in everyone’s home. As technology improves, so too does the digital artwork that professionals can create. This is why its reach goes far beyond the pixelated video games that were available 40 years ago. It extends into the computer world and even the movies that we watch on television when they have a lot of special effects in them. It has transformed the act of painting, making music, drawing, and more into what it is today. Do you enjoy the new visuals that we have?

It may be computer generated in the form of algorithms and fractals, or it can be formed from other things such as an image or a drawing that was created using vector graphics and a mouse along with the right type of software. These images are often 2D when the artist first touches them, but through the use of math, they will be translated into 3D using a perspective projection.

The Appeal of Art
