In my many years of experience as a professional artist, I have met many creative people. Some of which are very talented, and some, who's skills are lacking. The one thing that is the great equalizer, is CREATIVITY. Being creative is not how skilled you are at the mechanics of drawing, painting, sculpting, etc. Creativity is the driving force that causes one to sit down and execute an idea or a thought—Something that wells up inside us to breathe life into that thought or vision clamoring to get out.
The reason I am writing this is because I recently had a discussion with someone who made the comment, "computers have taken creativity out of artistic expression." I disagreed. My position has always been, and I shared it him, "the computer is a tool like a brush or a pencil or anything else an artist uses to express thoughts or ideas." I've seen artists with great technical skills sit in front of a blank canvas or paper, unable to come up with one original idea. Yet I know a few, not so technically skilled people who use anything they can to execute their masterpiece.
