Digital painting is a method of creating an art object in a computer. It adapts traditional painting medium such as acrylic paint, oils, ink, watercolor, etc. and applies the pigment to traditional carriers, such as canvas, paper, polyester etc. by means of computer software driving printers.Since forms and shapes that are characteristic for digital painting cannot be transmitted to a physical carrier by hand, a digital painting, in its physical representation, is by definition a print. When the artist projects the digital painting on a physical carrier and re-paints it by hand, thereby using the computer as a preparatory device and sacrificing some or all of the digital characteristics, the artwork is categorized as a 'traditional painting'.
