Hire Freelance Digital Painting Services

Digital painting is an art form where traditional painting techniques such as oils or watercolors are applied using digital tools. A digital painter is a professional artist who creates 2D and 3D computerized artwork from rough sketches or drawings. Unlike a conventional painter, a digital painter uses computerized tools like Adobe InDesign and Photoshop or Dreamweaver to create animation, images, logos, and gaming images. The role of a digital painter covers multiple product segments. Freelance digital painting services are used across various industries and verticals such as proprietary artwork, corporate branding, 2D and 3D gaming, animation movies, web designing, webcomics, blog writing and magazines.

What does a Digital Painter do?

Digital artists use customizable brushes and virtual palettes to get effects in their paintings. They capture digital gestures through graphic tablets, keyboard commands, touchscreen swipes or mouse movements. Digital painting freelancers begins their job by making sketches just like traditional painters drawing with a stylus on a blank canvas file. Their work areas are highly diverse. One of the key roles that digital painters play is in logo illustration and painting creation for books, articles, or comics. Digital painters also work as digital photo manipulators wherein they Photoshop and edit photos as per the project. They use photographs or graphic images as a tracing source.

A digital painting freelancer creates cartoons and images for animation movie and shows, games, videos, and tutorials. These professionals provide different types of digital services to enhance the visual appearance of stationary and corporate/organizational identity materials.
