SENSATION
On the blue summer evenings, I shall go down the paths,
Getting pricked by the corn, crushing the short grass:
In a dream I shall feel its coolness on my feet.
I shall let the wind bathe my bare head.
I shall not speak, I shall think about nothing:
But endless love will mount in my soul;
And I shall travel far, very far, like a gipsy,
Through the countryside - as happy as if I were with a woman.

Arthur Rimbaud 1870.

Designing

Digital art is an artistic creation that relies on the use of technology. Present since the 70s it comes in many forms.

The main difference between digital and traditional painting is the non-linear process. That is, an artist can often arrange his painting in layers that can be edited independently. Also, the ability to undo and redo strokes create nonlinear intervals in the creative process. Digital painting is also different in how it employs the techniques and study of traditional painting because of the surface differences and the wider variety of tools. The digital artist has at his disposal several tools not available to the traditional painter. Some of these include: a virtual palette consisting of millions of colors, (however these colors are ultimately limited by the capabilities of screen and printing technologies, whilst traditional forms of painting deal with pigment as a tangible material) almost any size canvas or media, and the ability to take back mistakes, as well as erasers, pencils, spray cans, brushes, combs, and a variety of 2D and 3D effect tools. A graphics tablet and a stylus allows the artist to work with precise hand movements simulating a real pen and drawing surface, while other programms are developed for fingerpainting directly on the screen. Both tablets and touch screens can be pressure-sensitive, allowing the artist to vary the intensity of the chosen media on the screen. There are tablets with over two thousand different levels of pressure sensitivity.

In digital editing, photographs are usually taken with a digital camera and input directly into a computer. Transparencies, negatives or printed photographs may also be digitized using a scanner, or images may be obtained from stock photography databases. With the advent of computers, graphics tablets, and digital cameras, the term image editing encompasses everything that can be done to a photo, whether in a darkroom or on a computer. Photo manipulation is often much more explicit than subtle alterations to color balance or contrast. Image editing software can be used to apply effects and warp an image until the desired result is achieved. The resulting image may have little or no resemblance to the photo (or photos in the case of compositing) from which it originated. Today, photo manipulation is widely accepted as an art form. And Digital Drawing is just a piece thats created from the ground up digitally.

NICTSI KHAMIRA

Digital Artist

I am mainly interested in portraits. All my portraits are imaginary characters created from an idea drawn (sketches) then worked and finalized with mainly Painter and Photoshop software. I'm also using SketchBook Pro and ArtRage Studio Pro.
As a picture bank, I take random pictures without a specific subject. From these photos I use some elements that I modify and insert in my compositions.

I followed all my schooling in France where I studied in Paris in a high school of Architecture.
Installed in Canada (Quebec) at the age of 25, I work in the field of Architecture while being interested in digital pictorial artistic development. It is from the years 2000 that I initiated myself to the realization of works realized in 90% digitally.
Painting and photography greatly influence my artistic work.
I live and work in Montreal, Quebec.
