Photoshop is no longer a simple tool to enhance photos, it has become the foundation for a new form of art: digital painting. In few decades, we will probably see digital artworks sold at obscene prices and people paying homage to legendary digital artists. This means that the Picasso and Degas of future generations could very well be nowadays artists that paint lines, colors and feelings in Photoshop. Although many critics say that digital art has no real value, the same critics are probably amongst folks who can’t see the difference between a simple poster and a digital artwork. They will argue that uniqueness represents the value of a classic painting. This may be true, but for me, the value of the art is not affected by the number of copies. If a piece of art touches my soul, I don’t really care how many copies exist in the world and how many people are touched by the same piece of art. Here is a list with some of the best digital artworks I could find.
