Digital Art - Digital Paint/collage
I created this image from a photograph I had of a partial nude and superimposed a digital paint I had created a few months ago. I wanted to use both in my art but didn't think to combine them until just recently. She has beauty with an attitude as you can see from her stance :)
The Nude is a work of fine art that has as its primary subject the unclothed human body. The nude is primarily a tradition in Western art, and has been used to express ideals of male and female beauty. Athletes, dancers, and warriors are depicted to express human energy and life, and nudes in various poses may express basic or complex emotions. As the product of a creative process, the nude is a genre of art, in the same sense as landscapes and still life. The subject is not merely copied from nature, but transformed by the artist into an aesthetic object. There is also a judgement of taste; the fine art nude being part of high culture rather than middle brow or low culture. However, judgments of taste in art are not entirely subjective, but include criteria of skill and craftsmanship in the creation of objects, communication of complex and non-trivial messages, and creativity. Some works accepted as high culture of the past, including much Academic art, are now seen as imitative or sentimental.
Modern artists have continued to explore classical themes, but also more abstract representations, and movement away from idealization to depict people more individually. During most of the twentieth century, the depiction of human beauty was of little interest to modernists, who were concerned instead with the creation of beauty through formal means.
