This is a club for mixed media artists of all kinds. This means you can join whether you use traditional or digital means, or a combination of both.
The dictionary definition of mixed media is this:
- artistic media, as pen and ink, chalk, and graphite, used in combination: an old master drawing in mixed media.
- A technique involving the use of two or more artistic media, such as ink and pastel or painting and collage, that are combined in a single composition.
Submissions are limited to 4 per week per member. As the group grows this number will be adjusted.
Submissions currently need to be voted into the gallery. This is just our way of making sure that the submission in really a mixed media piece.
Accepted forms of mixed media
This is art made from any form of traditional media. Example, using paint and incorporating other kinds of objects that are not usually meant for art is a common type of mixed media.
Note: using things like two different types of paint or different kinds of pencil are not mixed media, paint is paint and pencil is pencil
Traditional and Digital
Both traditional and digital mediums must be clearly a part of the piece. Sketching something on paper and then doing your actual art on the computer isn't acceptable.
Digital mixed media pieces are created using two different kinds of programs. An example is using photoshop and a 3D program to create one piece of artwork.
Note: This does not mean you can use two programs that perform the same function. An example is photoshop and opencanvas. These are different programs, but they are used to do exactly the same thing.
If you have any questions, or are wondering about a specific piece of yours, feel free to ask!
