Street photography by Rui Palha

Daily Inspirations no. 154

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.

Parkour and Freedom of Creation

George Hébert was once a French Navy Officer and his influence was spread throughout the French Army. French soldiers inspired by Hébert’s work went on and created “parcours du combatant”, which is an obstacle course training in which soldiers are timed to get past obstacles as quickly as possible.
