Since a long time now the creative photo art is an important and elementary part in his life.

Do you know the differences between traditional and digital painting? Well, one of them is that in the first case an artist cannot use Ctrl-Alt-Z to undo the previous action… Though the level of automation is very significant in the digital art process, even the most sophisticated image processing or editing software is useless without human participation, without creative vision, artistic inspiration, and painting skills. That is why nobody questions the statement that digital forms of art are of the same value as traditional ones. Digital art is just different, but it has many masterpieces worth of wide audience attention and many achievements worth of being proud of. Daily inspiration sets at Cruzine are both: sources of inspiration for artists and demonstrations of modern digital art success.
