Technology has provided us with more tools to express our selves. I have always been a visual person and most of the art that I appreciate are visual. Most of the good artist that I know can create works of art in whatever medium that is provided to them.
It doesn't matter if they do sketches or work in photoshop, most of their work still excel since they have the most important aspect of art which is creativity. In recent years, digital art has been growing exponentially. I've grown fond of this form of art due to the effect it produces. Digital art produces surreal images which is unique to this medium. Art made in this medium are also get more exposure which makes it a great way to market the artists work. Although digital art is abundant on the net, great works of art that stand out among the rest are still a rarity.
I've posted some of the works that I admire below. Check out their web pages for more samples of there work.
